Something I look forward to each year is visiting Laguna with G and his family. We usually take 3-4 days in September to spend time with his grandparents, and relax. The house we stay at is right on the beach, so naturally, we spend a majority of the trip playing in the ocean, and soaking up the sun.
This year, G and I decided to do some seashell hunting. We were lucky to find two giant ones: an albacore, and a spiral-looking one, in addition to a few smaller ones, but unfortunately, a lot of the smaller ones lost their shine after being rinsed off.
With the free time I had today, I decided to spruce them up with some gold paint and a color-blocking technique I've been seeing all over Pinterest. Read on to learn more about the technique, and how it can be applied to almost any object.
