Dragon Egg 'Party Boy' by KatherineReedKS Dragon Egg 'Party Boy' by KatherineReedKS
This egg, unlike many of the others, is not glossed. It does have a particular shine to it thought because after I was finished sanding it with my 1500 grit sandpaper I buffed it with fabric for about an hour so it shines without needing a layer of gloss. It isn't quite as shiny as if I had put a gloss on but it was a great test to see if I liked it and I did. Now that I have begun selling my eggs in a retail store I'm going to use the money I get to buy a actually buffing machine so I can make my eggs shine without the layer of glaze. I just love how the egg feels in my hand better when it is super smooth without the extra layer.

I wish one of my favoirte features had shown up in my picture but my camera just wouldn't work with me. Just like there are lines of color there are also lines of pure glitter! You can somewhat see one of them between the green and yellow lines in the lower middle section.

Yeah, I use waterproof sandpaper so that the dust isn't going in the air, that is very bad to breath in.

So pretty! :iconsobeautifulplz: How did you make it? Is it a painted egg?

Not paint, I used a blown out egg shell and sculpted different colors of polymer clay over its surface :)

Is this an ostrich egg? It's really interesting. Glitter is VERY hard to photograph, even with a good camera. It hardly ever shows up as good as it looks in real life. However, since I bought a Kodak Easyshare DX7630, even glittery things have been photographing with incredible clarity. It's an older camera, so you'll have to buy one on eBay or Amazon, but they don't cost much if you can find one. I paid $65 for mine, and I think $15 for a memory card. Best money I ever spent on a camera.

Its a chicken egg :) I'd love to do ostrich eggs one day but sadly they are just too expensive for the egg themselves and if I use chicken eggs then I get to make lots of french toast XD

Glitter is very hard, I wish I could afford a good camera but I just use the one on my phone XD

Oh my goodness, I love it! Looks like it's from a star dragon or something, what with the glitter.

What I'd love is a little shelf space in there. I could get things off my dresser (and have room for more!). :giggle:

:giggle: That would be quite interesting, I can't say I wouldn't be interested! I just have so little money of my own right now, it's frustrating. (I don't mean to keep whining on that, your prices are just fine!)
