Your centerpiece is lovely! The contest is closed but I did enjoy seeing how you used your eggs!

X2  Creative and functional!  Very nice!

I've also seen nails done like you did your eggs. I'm not sure if this is exactly like you did it...I purchased transfer type paper that I can print my own ideas out to transfer to my nails. I wasn't sure if clear coat would wreck it...sometimes it smears stuff. Modge podge looks like it's a shoe in.:yesss:

 

It does dry pretty quick - I do half the egg (narrow to wide lengthwise) and let it sit on the dry rack as I do the others and when I'm done with 12 or so I can pick them up (still a bit tacky) and do the other side. I don't do it thick - it looks weird and gets streaky - but I'd say that's pretty quick since a side is only about 5 swipes of a paintbrush. 

 

And it took me much longer than it should have to figure out why you were trying to paint large construction nails. 

 

That's what I imagined, anyway. 

 

Someone can revoke my woman card, now. Heck, I'll turn it in freely. 

That's pretty quick for drying time. Right on! :thumbsup

 

Haha...no need to turn in any card. I've had "maybe"10 nail polishes my whole life.

Starting in 2013, I now have 3 tall (8 drawer) gracious living storage units packed full of everything you can imagine in nail polish colors, nail art and bling.

It's funny how life goes.:hu 

 

And I, um,  couldn't figure out why the colors were numbered on the embroidering on duckchicks's egg. And then I realized she was talking about the ACTUAL numbers "2016."

Oh man. :hide :gig    I think you're fine. And painting on spikes. (nails)  I could see that being a thing. :clap

Thanks for sharing. The 3D goldfish was AMAZING. I had no idea that technique even existed. If I saw that finished in person, I would have thought a poor goldfish was just dropped in resin.

Amazing stuff and such skill!  When I first saw it I was like...what the ???

I even made my hubby and son watch it. It blew me away. Them, not so much...:gig

I took these last night, but its only about half finished.

 

 

"2016" on the back, each number will be dangling from gold string

Does anyone else like purple for Christmas?  I once decorated a tree in all purple. 

But I might change the "0" to red, then do the "1" in green, the "6" in red.

Looking good!  How in the world are you getting the needle through there without breaking egg?!

I would have it in pieces in thrown in the trash by now:D

There's a link a little further back in this thread that showed me how to do it. But you just exit out a hole on the opposite side, then come back in through the same hole for the next stitch.

A few well-placed larger holes are helpful, and I've found it easier to stitch a little at a time on one side, the go to the other, and back and forth. The shells are actually alot tougher than they seem. I've dropped them a few times!
