Paua is the world's most colourful shell, the colour changes when viewed at different angles. The shell has an iridescent quality that makes it amazing for use in mosaics and jewellery.
How can I use Paua Shell in my mosaic?
Paua Shell is a great feature within your mosaic; its beauty is in its iridescent quality. It’s great for adding texture, colour and pattern to your design. Using the indirect method the shell can be pressed individually into your cement based adhesive adhesive or use liquid nails to build up the high of the shell. Clear nail polish can be applied to the shell to enhance its colour and shine. Paua shell works wonderfully when incorporated into your design with other materials.
