What a fun craft! It makes me want to go get out the shells we collected in Florida and varnish them. I love the wire craft too, what a neat idea. I have definitely been slacking the craft category this summer for some reason. B took a week-long art class a few weeks ago and made all sorts of really fun things. She would do that sort of stuff every day if she could. She has an endless attention span for arts and crafts!

We use clear nail polish on the rocks, and i actually got the idea from you! maybe it is time we invest in a larger jar of varnish. we go to the beach in a couple of weeks and i can't wait until we come home with shells to polish!

Clear nail polish works great, too, but the large jar of varnish is definitely worth the investment! I think mine was $12.99, but a little goes a long way, so I see it lasting for awhile.

I LOVE the wire craft--I'm still working on my rock fish, and T. wants to make a rock turtle next.
