Glitchie's Dragon Egg Picture 1
Uploaded on February 26, 2011

First off, this is my first project, and while I like how it came out, I have learned I hate working with glue guns because of the fact my hand is so unsteady and the part where I needed the glue gun came out uneven. This egg was originally lavender when I picked it up at Michael's the other day. It is larger than a hen egg but I think I like the size for a dragon egg though I could have gone a size bigger. I used acrylic paint and painted it black to start because it had a number printed on it in black at the bottom. Then working my way out, I used a dry paper towel and dry napkins to get the texture on it. I had two shades of lavender for this egg as well. After painting, I used the glue gun, and then went over the glue again with silver glitter glue. As I patted it dry with a napkin, some of the glitter accidentally got onto the purple paint in between the glue designs. I liked the affect this had on the egg, so did it on purpose. As a final touch, to the glue design, I added some of multicolored self-sticking gemstones. This egg is going to my niece in NY. I hope she likes it. Her room is purple, that is why I picked purple for the egg. I think my other eggs will be normal hen sized since it took so long to paint. The picture is with the egg in my palm.

Fantastic, what an egg and a great making story. That's the beauty of crafting, even with instructions there are so many little problems to solve. The idea of these instructions is that they act as the framework for your inventiveness.

This egg was about four inches long from base to point. I do not think I will be working with this size or bigger again because it took so long to paint. I do think they are the ideal size for a dragon egg though XD

I am 32 years old and since I can't draw my way out of a paper bag, I though I would check out some of the crafting ideas on this site.
