Well, I got this idea from the Melted Army Men Bowls (http://www.dominicwilcox.com/warbowl.html), which I LOVE!!  I thought if you can melt army men, you can probably melt Easter Eggs.  I ended up making two bowls with eggs since I wasn't totally happy about how the colorful one turned out.

Here's both bowls:




Inside of Clear One:


Bottom of the Clear One:


Inside of Colorful One:


Bottom of Colorful One: - This one melted alot more then i wanted it to....it was the first one I did so I wasn't sure how long to let it get hot for...


This is a picture of the Colorful bowl with only the first layer of eggs....I probably should have stopped at this step with this one since I think it looks neater.  It kinda looks like chewed up bubble gum!


Here it is before I took it out the bowl:


Anyways, making these bowls is alot of fun and really stinks up your house...so if you try it make sure you open a window!  Smiley

It does smell but if you open all the windows it all goes away quickly.  It's really not that bad.  Smiley

LOOKING FOR A PERSONAL SWAP: I'm hoping for dinosaur-themed Xmas crackers, or other dinosaur Xmas items. I can make a Jayne Cobb hat, or many other things!

the clear one is really funky!  and I agree, the colorful one was better before you added a second layer.  But the idea is great!

Those are cool, and I probably will need to try that! Are there any special instructions, or did you pretty much follow the example you gave?

Cool beans!
