I am not sure if these are constructed by the same designer, but one image had the name Lolly Knit. Hats off to whomever designed and fabricated these…. i would love to have a base to mosaic (i likely would have used scrap and lots of color however).
Here is one wonderful egg in my opinion. I cant tell if it is wax resist pysanky or mosaic, but it certainly is in the style of pysanky. I am not sure if i got the creators name right, but am giving credit to what I think the name is.
I found this amazing egg on pinterest and wanted to share the website and the photo…. really awesome. Polymer clay – i don’t know the dimensions or the form that was used. But whomever did it… they did a spectacular job. Their website is HERE.
I was reading about organization (order in apparent chaos) for tissues cells and organelles with electron microscopy as a tool (transmission electron microscopy is what I have done for 40 years) and found a reference for chitin (someone’s blog i believe) and saw this picture of the layers of arrangement of N-acetyl-D-glucosamine (part of a chitin chain) (second ref from Cohen 1991) which has inspired me to try similar stacks of polymer clay to see if i can create a cane which upon slicing looks like the arched (which this blogger calls artifactual… probably more a visual consequence of slightly-continuously skewed orientation of molecules at a given thickness (oh wouldn’t it be fun to be someone who knew fractal equations… as they translate into DNA code). Anyway, below is a diagram for all you polymer clay cane enthusiasts to practice with…. cane layers on the right, and the hyperbolic curves on the left…. please have fun… I cant wait to try it.
This is a link to this individuals pinterest post HERE, where this image was posted. Would that I could make an egg as beautiful as this ornament. I cannot clearly tell if this is “flat” or round, which i think it is. THis site has many other polymer clay round objects.
Lithuanian egg art, with wax, which is a little reminiscent to Pysanka, with the use of kista and dyes. This appears to be a technique where the dyed or natural egg has colored wax applied with a straight pin in the end of a pencil (convenient) and this is used to dip into melted wax (maybe a mix of bee’s wax for melting control and crayons for color) and applied in quick rhythmic strokes. Can’t wait to try this. I took a lot of searching to find the name…. everything was in a language I could not understand (LOL), which says something about my lack of linquistic prowess. See someone’s photo here which I have credited by linking the picture back to their site. They did a wonderful job.

This was an egg shell mosaic on a chicken egg made by my daughter-in-law during their visit to Cincinnati, 2016. Awesome. The egg shells are dyed with traditional pysanky dies and then glue with white glue onto an emptied chicken egg shell. Coating is Varathane.
peyote stitch eggs, found on pinterest HERE
Just looking around and following links from google images of polymer clay eggs I found this nice tutorial for family clay time. It is simple enough for even a young kid and older kids can take it to an extreme level… fun for the whole family. find it HERE KAEL MIJOY’s website.
