I just found some old fingernail polish in the closet (left there by my daughter some 15 years ago) and decided to test to see if it still worked. What better place than an empty egg shell, and to mix it up with markers and other inks and glitter.
Here is a christmas tree globe ornament decorated with white and colored polymer clay made with funeral flower petals. Keepsake.
Polymer clay and flower petals ground and kneaded into the clay, with butterfly using the same cane atop the egg. If you want to purchase this egg, find it HERE.
This egg was made for a friend who has been a wonderful training coach for running the Flying pig marathon. Last saturday was the 20 mile run (day be fore easter this year – April 1). The metal filigree brass colored cross was purchased at michaels, which I bent and shaped to fit an egg. The euphorbia milii flower (two red petals and a yellow center) is called the christ plant and it carries a whopping number of ugly large thorns… actually an amazing number of thorns. It does grow in the middle east and perhaps (legend says) was the plant plaited into a crown of thorns. All i now is that whomever made that crown also got seriously injured.
These photos are not that great, but you can see the metal cross and the flower cane on the back… and the light yellow cane behind the cross had fluorescent yellow powder kneaded into it (btw the powder makes the clay a little less fun to work with…. it feels like baking soda had been added to prevent sticking… LOL) bit after just a few hours in the kitchen window… it did fluoresce in the dark.
It is this plant growing in the middle east that has the legend of being plaited into the crown of thorns, and actually is called the common name of the christ plant.
Same cane as previous easter egg from 2018. Different take. Polymer clay and empty egg shells. This one might be my favorite, since it has the two petal flower with red center in a large and a smaller version and i put the “thorns” in the green background.
Had a lot of fun with the euphorbia milii cane that i made for easter eggs this easter. Made two of them while listening to easter messages. Two petal red flower with yellow center is in the center of the round white cane. This egg and others were made from left over clay from memory-bead projects.
