    Are those actually made out of clay, or clay molded onto an egg?

    Had a great idea to make x-mas ornaments out of some of mine (after blowing them out LOL!). But not sure how to make them look really cute like yours.

    Great job! I love that white one with the purple ends.

    thank you.......its my first real test of craftiness for me.....not something I usually do...it is clay placed on egg,then baked........so easy.........cept for me , the sanding is hard on my hands.... I love the one you mentioned,just make sure to bleach / clean the shell really well before baking, I am learning as I go.......and so glad my dh blows the eggs.......he full of hot air so why not him [​IMG]

    I have been saving this link, because I want to try this, but life gets in the way!
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=17599&p=1

    I just hope that link works, if not the title of the thread is "POLYMER CLAY EGGS....Step by Step Tutorial"

    I love these eggs and can hardly wait for a quiet moment to try to make some. I was hoping to make one for my mom for Christmas, but not this year. When I get one made, I will just send it to her!

    OkieChick, your eggs are great, I love them all! Share some of the techniques with us??? Please?
