This master class on the unusual use of an egg-shell as a mosaic. Everyone can find material for this type of creativity, and by giving a second life to the shell and connecting your imagination, you can create spectacular and unusual things. In this master class we will create a light and simple mosaic “Broken Heart” so let's get started. We will need: - eggshell; - colors of orange, red, yellow, green, blue and violet colors;- PVA glue, - a sheet of white cardboard; - primer and craquelure varnish - this is possible. 1. Wash the eggshell, clean the inner film and put it in 5% soda solution for 5 minutes.

3.Cut a rectangle of cardboard 10 * 15 cm (size can be arbitrary), primed with white paint.
