My daughter loves the animated film, "the Song of the Sea" so I wanted to make the shell flute that Saoirse plays.

Looking for actual Nautilus shells proved difficult, and ones the right side were pricey, so I decided wood would be the way to go.

Cut out the rough shape, and then used a dremel to do the swirl.

Then I added the tone holes and the blow hole.

More sanding...

Then a coat of primer

And then found this pearl colored acrylic paint that gave it a nice depth.

And here it is.

Next time I would probably go the extra mile to make the wood as smooth as possible, as there's some surface areas that aren't quite right. But all in all, she's happy with it, so that makes me smile!
