Very cool! I bet the texture feels as neat as it looks. Thank you for the tutorial!

I love the idea of using this technique for dragon scales. I hope someone tries that and posts it here Smiley.

Very nice - I love this effect. This is a craft from back in the day (tells you how old I am). This would also look cool on paper mache boxes or vases.

I'm actually making a box right now for my D&D characters & dice (to take to games, so a lot of travel) & am wondering how well this finish holds up? do the eggs crack if they get pushed on or is there enough glue underneath to close any gaps?

I LOVE this idea & if it will stand the wear it'll be perfect for my dragon-hide covered box! Cheesy

This is wicked, reminds me of really thick, old leather. It would be awesome on the cover of a notebook, but isn't it pretty fragile?

I agree with everyone who said it looks like dragon scales! How cool would it be to fashion some kind of dragon eye looking out of the cover? Or would that just be creepy?

I have been saving egg shells for the compost pile, and I might have a chipboard journal around here somewhere, so I can give this a try in the near future.

Thanks for sharing!
