Week 11: Scrappy Eggs

polymer clay easter egg

There’s a degree of irony that I got to making Christmas ornaments before I did Easter eggs, I admit. Most years I buy a pack or 2 of plastic eggs, try them out in the oven. Watch at least one melt into plastic art. Then cover the survivors in clay and make random things. Since I don’t usually have shows before Easter, I rarely make them to sell and they end up given away or in the Box of Odd Experiments.

This egg got the full treatment – testing (yay! it didn’t melt like it’s friend did). Covered in pale coloured scrap clay. Then I sliced up the last of my favourite Stroppel cane and covered my egg-periment of the year. A little sanding and buffing made for a nifty egg everyone seemed to like here.
