Since Easter is fast approaching, I thought I would post up my tutorial on how to make some easter eggs of your own...made in part with real eggs! (but its mostly polymer clay tho)

Just follow the link below to the tutorial.

Wonderful tutorial, never thought about using polymer clay.
I would also suggest you get an egg blower, saves time AND jaw/cheek problems Tongue I'm serious when I say it saves me, I can empty ten eggs in the same amount of time it takes me to empty one the old way Tongue I was a little unsure at first, and my family did give me some odd looks, but when my mother saw how it worked she wished she have that when I and my sisters were young.

I dont do the eggs very often, so doing one or two isnt too bad.  It looks a bit daunting at first, but it looks great when its done :-)

Nice tutorial!

When I blow out eggs for clay, I use a cheapie egg blower I finally bought.  But before that, I had just used a bendable straw--just couldn't take all that direct hard blowing  Shocked
There are other things that can be used too (bulb syringes, etc)--they're all listed on my Eggs page if anyone wants to save their cheeks and ear canals!
http://glassattic.com/polymer/eggs.htm
(...On that page, there are also all kinds of ways to do clay coverings and patterns on eggs, and also to cover partly then soak out the eggshell with vinegar, to use some brands of plastic or papier mache or wood eggs, etc).

(I put info about various ways to smooth the clay on eggs when raw in this thread on the Discussions page:

I was going with the few supplies I have for polymer clay at the time.  I appreciate you posting the extra links for additional smoothing techniques.  Next time I make one I will have to try some of these out.  I do use cornstarch or babypowder for when I dont want something sticking to my marble slab
