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.
