    One of our ladies posted a step-by-step of how she made polymer clay canes, sliced them, attached them to the egg and what she did to get them so shiny.

    I have looked at all of my posts and searched for keywords.

    There are very few sites that I post to, so I am pretty sure it was on BYC.

    After doing a Google check, there are plenty of other places for the info, but I wanted this particular one.

    They were beautiful. Anyone remember???

    They were eggs like those, but this was a post on BYC and it was very detailed. I have found a lot of other how-to's on the internet, but I'm looking specifically for the BYC post.

    I should have added that it was probably around 2009....? Sorry, my memory is failing me.

    Thanks for looking, though. :)

    Whittni - YOU FOUND IT! That last one is it.

    I am sure that used to be on BYC! It has fewer photos now, but that is it!!

    Thank you!

    I am glad I caught this! How fun. I might wedge in some time to try this myself.( I am not sure I'd use a hand gun though.-she looked alarmed. Maybe a rubber band would do the trick. [​IMG] )

    It's funny how that post vanished from BYC but it must have happened during the migration to this newer site.

    I thought they were pretty cool.

    Yinepu someone mentioned that do eggs, but I didn't know you were in Texas! :)

    yup... been carving, painting (and polymer once it was available) for most of my life... I need to go pick up some more ostrich eggs if the breeder still has them stockpiled for me..
    And I've been in Texas for more years than I can count.. did take a "vacation" and moved up north for a bit.. but couldn't stay away for very long.. just missed Texas way too much
