Clam Glam is a Shore Thing: 100 Days of Painting on Seashells

All Days | Day by Day | Author Login

Adopt-a-Shell: Give a Former Tiny House, a New Home. Each of these seashells was once home to a little creature, on the shores of, or on the bottom of local coastal waters. Now each of them has been given a fresh coat of interior decoration, with their outsides left mostly untouched, showing the story and beauty of where they have been. If you would like to give one a loving home, or if you know someone who would be thrilled to have them, please: click on your favourite shells and find out their story and adoption details. Proceed portions go to marine education, conservation and research. Postage is free. (Sometimes a few requests for the same shell are received, so I will request payment only from the person who 'got' the shell. Thank you xo)

Day 51 Chip Monster

51/100 (NZD 36) The natural markings on this shell were perfect for this dedication to our inner chip monster. This creature was unleashed on our way home from an afternoon of representing the marine discovery centre at a symposium for science teachers. I even recognised someone I met and chatted with out in the surf in Gisborne, a town 7+ hours' drive away, last April! It was fun showing them cool critters like sea urchins and starfish up close on an awesome microscope but we were starving by the end of the session! Thanks Moyang for reminding me that chip monsters also love kumara fries. Love this shell, and want to give it a new home?
