~ Process ~
I paste these shells with any transparent glue(you can use mod podge)I am using movileth German glue because after making 30 cool creations now my mod podge is about to end..
You can make any thick & big shape,I make a thin design because I want to have its dark red color!
Leave it until dry!

I make a few rough strokes of flat brush too!
At the end I apply mod podge sparkle on it & its done!
