I bought the dremel tool for delicate carving, and tried on a few duck eggs, but wasn't very successful.  I need to try again.  I think it will be easy enough to use, to make the holes for the embroidery eggs though.

That's what I "was" going to do. "Was" is the key word there...:gig

I bought an engraver and a dremel tool to carve eggs. The engraver was much more precise.

My broken egg picture is what happened when I used the dremel. (Knock off version)

:bow on the embroidery eggs and drilling that!

 

I think for carving/etching one almost requires precision equipment like the sc carver or a dentist tool.

I don't think I can afford those at the moment.:(

I'm going to stick with what I know best....nail art.

 

Hopefully I'll get something done soon. :celebrate

I TOTALLY agree!!

I didn't even know some of this art existed. Amazing

I've learned SO much and it's opened up whole new worlds of ideas! :woot

In researching I even found new techniques for nail art with the painting.

(You tube takes a person on a wild ride) :gig
