Great Book of Egg DecoratingBook - 2004
Turn ordinary eggshells into works of art with traditional designs. For centuries, people have revered the egg as a symbol of life, fertility, and love, and they have developed an array of artistic possibilities: egg blowing, wax resist, drilling, and d#65533;coupage for beautifying it. Choose from chicken, duck, ostrich, goose, and quail eggs to get a variety of sizes; see how creative you can be; and show them off in floral centerpieces, as ornaments and package trims, and more. Make a distinctive mobile with eggs wax-embossed with stars and rosettes, or fill an Easter basket with varnished eggs threaded with colorful ribbon. With these tricks of the trade, this is the definitive guide to a timeless craft.
