Sea glass mosiac/collage

Well we decided after a few suggestions to go with a mosaic for the butterfly. Alice wanted something she could have in her room so we’ve used the back of a picture frame to glue the sea glass onto.

Transferring the butterfly was a little tricky

It was quite hard to create a background where the butterfly didn’t just fade into. We will see what it looks like once it’s grouted tomorrow.

  1. Hi Kate. Yes Alice has that learning disposition of perseverance and will see a project of interest to her, through to the end. We used some food colouring dye for the shells. Water mixed with a little vinegar and a splash of food colouring.
