11  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Cool Cracky Effect with Eggsshel on: May 05, 2011 07:21:06 PM
I saw this effect on a show from Utilisima (a latinamerican crafts-or-kind-of channel)

We Need:

-Paint of your choise
-Surface of choise (can be almost anything...on the show, they decorate a flower vase, so pick your thing)
-And some music or show to watch while you work...jeje (i was watching House MD, 6 season Cheesy)


Ok, so...First of all, obviously, you have to wash the eggshell...take off the thin skin on the inside...to do that, you put them under water like 10 minutes, and start to pull away that skin...and when you finish, let the eggshells get dry...im sorry i dont haver pics of that...i totally forgot....

Now...clean your surface, and put some glue on it...then crack the eggshell and push it to crack it more on the glued surface....

When you're done, it has to look like this...if is not, dont worry...this is art, and you can make it the way you want Cheesy

Then, is the fun part.....haha, what am i saying..this is all fun!!! jeje......Let's Paint!!!!!

Try to cover all the little corners...

The last step is a second paint, but this time...its like water with a drop of pain....because this is for the background, to make it darker, and make some depht effect..
This watery paint is in ALL the surfacer and eggshells, but try to put some more on the cracks...then youll have that darker effect....Also if you want the background on other color, you paint the surface before to start pasting the eggshells (you can paint this ones before put them on the glue)
Here's mine...my camera is not that nice with my crafts, but you can see the cool effect we get!!

Use your imagination..this depends of what you want, or need...Make it and show me..i would love to see your work!! Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Thank you so much for the comments Cheesy

Diane B: I use the only clay that is sold here (Porcelanicron in spanish), and is air-dry...im a little scared try to heat it...it doesnt have ANY instructions en the bag, so its kind of hard that way..
And the wires and the hooks...all is before the clay...

Ok, this was py secret project for a while...its not completely finished (nothing is..jeje) but here it is...enjoy and i hope you to get inspired Cheesy

This is how i begun...with a sketch that ends in somewhere of my room, next with newspaper and wire to hang it out and take the form that i wanted...

Then, came the Polymer Clay...here i use it cold, 'cause i dont really know how to use the one which has to be baked......this took me yearssss (not really, like 2 months, but is just because im toooo lazy, jeje)
Ohh..btw, i made the graves with industrial paperboard (carton industrial), but with the polymer, the kind of..get curvy  Undecided

And the almost end was this, with paint and all that....it looks like empty, uhh?

And here it is!!!!!! Holding all my accesories and stuffs....its easier to find them this way Cheesy

I had to undone it, so its gone...but It was like 30 cm tall...

I dont use a pattern, but has the form of a dice..., and to hold the right shape i use some thing called Interlon (i dont know the english name, im from Colombia), it like a bold paper, but its like fabric too...and its impossible to tear in pieces by hand, only with scissors...
