I learned all about eggshell mosaic two days ago and couldn't resist trying it out...so if you see this instructable...it means it came out pretty good :-)

Step 1: Things you need

1 eggshells
2. tacky glue
3. foam board ( this is what i had around...you could use ply wood or any hard surface you want)
4. alcohol ink ( or water colors will do i think...i just made my homemade inks and it turned out okay)
5. varnish

hi what do u mean by gesso?
shazni (author)  Shabzy2 years ago
gesso is something you apply on canvas or board to make it easier to paint on...
in Asian countries you could ask for wall filler and paint with that...
Gesso/ wall filler is used on surfaces which is difficult to paint on ...such as plastic or slippery foam board...it is also used on fabric so that the paint does not seep through.
If you are using wood or hardboard you could even use emulsion paint or acrylic paint....not latex paint as it would be slippery and then you would be unable to paste the egg shells.
Hope what I have written helps you...if you need more help please feel free to ask !
