Day 2: Easter Eggs and Holder

Easter eggs!  I used white Sculpey Polymer Clay to make these eggs.

First I rolled a some clay into a small ball.

DSCN3276I shaped the ball into an egg shape by rolling the circle in my hand, but doing it more on one half of the circle than on the other.

DSCN3277 I made seven of these and baked them.  They took about 45 minutes to bake.

After the eggs were baked, I used them to make the holder.  I formed the clay into a rectangle, about 3/8 of an inch thick.  I placed the egg on the rectangle and squished it down.
DSCN3283I did this eight times.  Squishing the clay around with the eggs distorted the original rectangle, so before I baked the holder I  smoothed everything out and corrected the edges.  The holder took about an hour to bake.

Once everything was baked, I mixed together some acrylic paint and painted the eggs each a different color.  I painted the holder brown.

Finished product!
