I knew that I had been exploring polymer covered egg shells for a while, but I hadn’t realized that they are starting to become “my thing.” This photo shows a portion of them. It seems that I can celebrate just about any occasion with an egg 🙂
If you’d like to read about some of my egg shell projects, they are collected under this label:
This Art Deco bud vase started with a hollow egg shell that I covered almost entirely with luscious eggplant purple polymer clay topped off with a swag of gilded gold. The influence for the gold faux fabric swag around the top is from Helen Breil’s Shapes e-book.
I left a portion of the egg exposed on the top so that I could add the hole after it was baked. I dyed the interior of the egg purple to match the exterior. The lid is sculpted from polymer as is the base. Antique perfume bottles served as the creative spring board for the design. I finished off the bottom with my signature stamp.
I am going to be entering it in the Polymer Clay Artists Guild of Etsy monthly challenge for April. The theme is containers. Public voting takes place April 1-7. Three lucky voters will be chosen in a drawing to win a gift certificate from one of the sponsors so please be sure to visit www.pcagoe.com to cast a vote for your favorites.
And yes ladies (and gentleman), it is for sale. If your heart desires owning this beauty, visit my etsy shop: www.YoungCreative.etsy.com

Polymer Egg Art
This curious-looking white rabbit, emerging from his hole, is my latest adventure in polymer-covered egg art. For this one, I layered a hollow chicken egg shell with a polymer base, leaving an open area to cut a hole in the shell. That allowed me to sit the rabbit down in for a more 3-dimensional look. Everything you see here was sculpted by hand. Most of the color comes from the clay itself. I use very little paint and no molds.
This piece is in a private collection, but new wonders are listed in my online Etsy shop. Click below to visit. I also take a limited number of custom orders each year.
