Eggshell mosaics starts from a drawing. The shells are sterilized, then pre-painted inside and out in different colors. After they dry for a week, they’re carefully broken into tiny pieces, stored in bins and eventually applied one by one, with surgical instruments. This is time consuming work which needs much patience. The eggshell-technique is rare and difficult, but the result is a lovely sunny art which can beautify the interior.
