Decorating eggs is a big thing for me, ever since i was old enough to hold a pen or paintbrush. 77 years later, the minute christmas is over i move on to eggs.
This particular decorated egg can be made custom with your flower petals, or pet fur, bird feathers, pine cones, glitter, confetti, paper announcements, just about whatever you can think of can be embedded in the flowers and dimensional patterns in a keepsake memorial egg like this. You just contact me with your wishes and I will try to invent the solution.
This egg is over 4 inches tall, close to 5, and is made on a core egg that is hollow.
Easter egg charm pendant made custom with your flower petals as a commemorative item. These are about 1 inch in height (maybe a little more) and can be converted to refrigerator magnets if you wish. Go to the products section here, or go to Memory-beads.com
Checkerboard polymer clay cane slices were applied to a chicken egg, then worked and moved and smoothed and a couple red (Kandinsky type dots) were added as a surprise.
This was an experiment (as are all my eggs) in joining texture with abstract background cane with a fairly obscure spiral representing a rose, green and turquoise clay for leaves and brown marbled clay for sticks and stems.
I saw some “dot” artwork, either painting or tiles (the tiles that are called penny rounds are totally fun) and I set to make something like that using polymer clay and an empty chicken egg shell.
This egg was a variation on one done earlier, which I found both fun to make and interesting to look at. This one differs in that i used metal “flower centers” instead of polymer clay as I did on the first version pictured here. So the technique of the cut flower and the different color center remained the same, but there is space in the background (black polymer clay) on the first egg, and green mottled leaves on the second egg. Another difference is that the latter was a very tiny chicken egg, the former much larger. This is really a practice for an ostrich egg, coming up. Check the products to purchase it, or go to Memory-beads.
Just a little bit different take on a decorated egg happened while creating this one. There are four textured panels that are sparkling black and in between those there are packed little flowers, looking something like a rose, maybe.
This was a fun egg to make since it was a take on my favorite fabric pattern. If you have some similar image with which you want me to make a custom decorated keepsake egg, just send it to me at marian(at)pdqpatterns(dot)com or click on my memory beads website.
This is just a fun little egg, decorated with left over scraps of polymer clay from making refrigerator inchie magnets (with horse hair, pet hair) as keepsakes. It can be made with whatever items you might wish to turn into a custom keepsake (charms, ashes, tiny pieces of fabric, flower petals, anything you want to remember).
Base was manufactured over a plastic egg (two halves) using paper mache then put back together with more paper. Then covered with a thin layer of translucent polymer clay (still in halves) and many of the flowers were put on in a two part egg. The total egg was put together, and cured, and then flowers and background finished.
All in all, i would make the basic halves but the first coat of polymer clay would be a single unit, since putting the halves together was a little problematic.
