I'm trying my hand at a new craft! I'm primarily a colored pencil artist, but I can paint as well. Here is an example of my first attempt at painting on eggs. This acrylic painting is based on an illustration I did in colored pencil. The painting is on a black copper marans egg so the brown background color is the natural color of the egg. I painted a gloss over the whole thing. I'm going to put a nice bead topper on the egg so it can be hung.
