Not a Good Day for Eggs

This happened post varnishing. I was being careless.

This one made me sad. I liked this one and was going to give it to my granddaughter's teacher. I'm not sure why it broke. I was wiping the wax off and it just caved in. I didn't know it would do that full of eggy matter.

The turquoise one and this ant one are new.

I broke no less than three other eggs today. Luckily, they had just been dipped in one color and I hadn't put any design on them yet.

Though it crossed my mind that this may just not be my "thing," I'm not willing to concede yet.

My mother-in-law told me this story today: She had given an egg - not hollowed out - all beautified up, to the priest at her church. A little while later it exploded in his china cabinet. Yum.

She said after that she only did hallowed out eggs, and they were a lot easier to work with.

Keep at it - I love seeing your designs!

I am amazed at your talent, Jan. they really are amazing, and I am sad with you about the ones you have cracked and broken, but... those can be yours. rest them against something with the "bad" side hidden, and you still have a piece of wonderful art... glue is my friend, by the way. I am a glue-oholic! hee hee hee :-) thinking of you.

My heart is aching for those beautiful broken eggs. My goodness it just makes me ill to think of all that work and then crack.
They are so beautiful, you are so talented! I love the red one and the one with the deer on it.
