So, I was sorting through my art supplies and came across a number of items that I had either not used at all or not used for a long time and thought that I would try them out. I wanted small projects and eggs seemed the ideal choice especially as Easter is not too far away.
Some of the things I used to decorate the eggs include silver foil leaf (not used before), store bought air dry clay, chalk paints, crackle glaze, soft pastels, metallic acrylic paint, paper clay, joint compound (not used before) and a few small wooden cogs. All the eggs were made from traditional paper mache paper strips and flour glue over an egg mould.
I covered all the moulds with cling film (saran wrap) so that I could reuse them (some were styrofoam). All of the eggs open so a little something can be popped inside such as chocolates or bath cubes or some such lovely little item. I had lots of fun making them and learned a few techniques along the way. I hope you like them and if any of you want to know how I decorated any particular egg then please ask and I will be happy to let you know.
