Also loved the "Sunny & Cher," eggs but can't remember who entered them.
Thanks! I don't keep track how long any gourds take to complete, but I'd estimate about 8 hours (not counting the drudgery of cleaning the gourd and the inside of the eggs). It was actually quite easy, but the goal of doing a mosaic in different colored eggshell pieces will be quite difficult. I saw one once and it was so impressive.
Here is my first entry:
Plain eggshell, cotton floss, beads, sequins, and a generous amount of superglue. This was my first, and took about six hours.
Three coats of shellac, cotton thread, synthetic metal thread. My second, but it took a lot longer. (All that "cross-hatching" with a tiny thread...)
Those are wonderful! Did you make the holes with a Dremel? Will you use these as Christmas ornaments?
I haven't seen this type of decorating on eggs before, very cool!
@Embuck Wonderful! Very creative! You must have some nice thick eggshells.
Yes, those holes were made with a Dremel. I was lucky with the first egg; the shell was strong enough to take it. The second and third eggs quietly vanished. The fourth egg is the one posted; I gave it three coats of shellac before drilling. There are a couple of dark secrets patched together with superglue on each egg.
I do intend to use these as ornaments. Christmas tree, or Easter tree, or maybe both. I've had wild ideas of an "egg-mobile" as well. You know, a framework with the eggs hanging on strings...
That is such a cool idea, love how they turned out...must take a bucket of patience, lol.
Your egg-mobile idea reminds me of an egg someone posted quite a while back, Cinderella's coach
Can't imagine even attempting something that intricate.
i like the idea of the mobile
WOW...some really great eggs here! This looks like a fun contest, I wish my birds were laying right now. Everybody is molting!
Keep up all the wonderful eggs everyone!
