This DIY project is how I clean and paint some of my old abalone shells.
The bleach cleans the cracks were the wire wheel can not reach. The bleach will also remove some of the color if you leave it to long.
I have also seen people use muriatic acid to clean the shells if you want to leave the barnacles on the shell.
It is diluted and the shells are dipped in it for only a few minutes.

These shells are not for sale. It is illegal to buy or sell wildlife in California.
This video was made by me in California about the red abalone. I do not know the rules and regulations of abalone in other parts of the world. These are the rules here in California.
California Fish and Game Code.
Article 2. General Provisions - California Fish and Game Code Section 7121
7121. Except as otherwise provided by this code or by regulation,
it is unlawful to sell or purchase any fish or amphibia taken in, or
brought into, the waters of the state, or brought ashore at any point
in the state.
Section 75
“Sell” includes offer or possess for sale, barter, exchange, or trade.

You can go on E-Bay if you want to buy abalone shells.
