This is a real blown out chicken egg covered with polymer clay. These eggs are NOT painted. All of the color is in the clay. On this egg I've used a mixture of shades of green, peach, orange and white mixed with translucent clay. I've suspended some Pearl Ex pigment powder and gold metal leaf in the translucent clay for sparkle and depth. The clay is pieced over the egg and blended.The egg is then baked, sanded smooth and finished with a clear glaze. The stand shown here is for display only and not included.
These abstract eggs make lovely focal objects for meditation. In addition to the interesting designs, they are also very smooth to touch.
