This is a real blown out chicken egg covered with polymer clay in a pattern of white flowers with purple centers on a light green background. These eggs are NOT painted. All of the color is in the clay. You create the design in a long tube of clay referred to as a cane. Pieces of the cane are sliced off and arranged on the egg shell and then filled in and smoothed out. The egg is then baked, sanded smooth and finished with a clear glaze. The stand is not included.
