Like the work. I would have never have thought of wax...I made a "dragon" egg for a a HP swap a little bit ago. I used a real egg shell and hot glue and just painted away and varnished it. I would like to see your technique. If you do not mind.

This is so beautiful! :-) What a great idea! I think it turned out wonderfully - the flaws you see are the ones that give it character ;-). Promise :-)

 Shocked Wow really neat. I'd love to try, but molten silver sounds scary - I'm a bit of a clutzy craftster. But to see the tutorial would be awesome because the process sounds interesting.

I think some of our fellow crafters think your egg is made of plastic, when in fact you have created it using the plastic only as a mold. 
  Cool

Thanks for pointing that out!  I think I confused people when I originally said it was made out of a plastic egg.  When in reality, I used a plastic egg but it is gone by the end of the project.  The final product has no plastic in it; it is pure silver. 

I was trying to explain this to someone and the best I could say was the silver now takes up the same space in the universe as where the plastic used to be.   Undecided
It's confusing...I'll start writing a tutorial!  Grin

A tutorial is coming soon!
