Every year I try to make some (or one) polymer clay easter eggs. I started this one on Good Friday and I finished on Easter Monday.
Really? It took that much time? It looks pretty simple to me. Yes indeed! But inside there’s a…
…tiny Fairy Garden. The lid is lined with purple velvet and studded with little silver beads to look like the night sky. Irritatingly I had to do this twice because the first time the velvet was too thick and the lid wouldn’t close. Luckily I found out before the glue had fully dried.
The idea was inspired by Lisa Loria’s Fairy Garden Ring tutorial on Polymer Clay Adventure. As you can see I got pretty carried away with the detail.
Here’s a picture to give some scale. The whole egg is about the size of a hen’s egg.
This egg is lovely. The dichotomy between simple and complex really works here.
It sounds good when you put it like that! Thanks 😉
Absolutely wonderful thing! Faberge would be pleased!
LOL, I shall contact Sotheby’s directly.
I love it! 😀 So cute!
