How to Make Gilded Seashells

Like candlelight dinners and long walks on the beach? Gold diggers need not reply.
Nope, this isn't a cheesy personals ad.
But if you like seashells and gold, brass, silver and metallic tones, then I have the perfect DIY project match for you: two super-easy techniques for gilding and gold leafing seashells. (You can use shells you find at the beach or the craft store!)

    I live on the west coast, and to clean our shells we place them in a bucket of water with a little bleach.....cleans and takes away all fishy odor.....plus any creatures that are hiding. I leave them in bucket for a week somewhere out of the way of pets and kids...then rinse well and we dry them on old news papers....

    Amy I tried using the Martha Stewart Liquid Guilding. It was easy to use. However when I sprayed the High Gloss Enamel Sealer ( as recommended) it turned the guilding RED! No gold tone ...just red. What happened????
