So here are the egg shells I covered with polymer. These are one of my very favorite things to create, and I really hope you like them! A few of them have seed beads inside them to make them egg shakers. I used to use one for a vocal jazz group I was a part of.






I also covered the backs of some mirrors, as inspired by another craftster post I've seen on here (sorry I can't remember the name!)

Holy crap, those are amazing! I love the swirlies and twirlies! The green egg in the middle, is that one painted? I think that one is my favorite, I love the colors.

These are so cool, I would love to have a pocket mirror decorated like that!

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

Every body wants a rock to wind a piece of string around.

Holy Cow! Gorgeous! Did you use an extruder or press of some kind? They're amazing.
Also, is there a video of your group on YouTube so we can see and hear the eggs in action?  Grin

Beautiful! I especially love how the eggs look almost all one color but look so different because of the swirls and the dots. How did you do the rows of dots?

They are beautiful!  I wanted to try to make eggs like that for Easter, but never got around to it.
