Today is an "Eggciting Day" for me and the blog because it's my birthday! Wooohooo. Thank you for all
your love and kind greetings. Early this morning, we were able to catch the first of the Four Blood Moons - NASA says that seeing four complete lunar eclipses in a row is very rare and we will have one every 6 months until October 2015. We have never seen one so we stayed up late for it and it was amazing! We just stood in awe at how great and might God is - He who created the heavens and the earth.
This project is part of the Philippine Polymer Clay Guild's "Something Whimsical Challenge" and Martha Stewarts "marthasgoodeggs" intsagram post. The first challenge for me was to figure how to remove the contents of the egg while keeping the shell intact. So, I did some research and ewwww... it was totally gross! Let me be graphic here: make 2 holes on both ends of the egg, burst the egg and mix it up with a needle tool and finally blowing the contents out. Now don't tell me I didn't warn you. Anyway, after cleaning and drying the eggshell for 24 hours, I got to work on it.
Friends, meet "Mini-Me." Oh, isn't she cute? She's having a wonderful time strolling with her yellow birthday balloon, enjoying the sight of bluebonnets and other wildflowers.
This is made from 100% Premo sculpey polymer clay using the applique technique which is a very tedious and meticulous process that takes a lot of patience, gentle hands and the ability to hold your breath for a long time. The latter helps to concentrate in order to be precise in putting the components in place. Whew!
May your days be blessed!
