Dragon Egg 'Rainbow Dash' by KatherineReedKS Dragon Egg 'Rainbow Dash' by KatherineReedKS
For Sale on Etsy - www.etsy.com/listing/184308009…?

I've gotten a lot of support to make more rainbow eggs so I made one :) I'd love to make this same pattern one more time but use black clay instead of white, I'm just curious how it would look.

This is the first egg I've posted that is shiny without using any polyurethane. I got a buffing machine that spins a wool cloth wheel super fast and after I've finished sanding the egg I sit and buff the whole surface for a good while and it becomes super shiny as if I had put a gloss on it :) I always wanted to buff my eggs because I just didn't like the feel of the polyurethane and now I don't have to use it anymore!

Maybe when it's ready to hatch the egg changes to gold :)

Did you know if you made these into marbles also... there is a huge market for handmade marbles... even if they are polymer clay! I've sold several on Ebay years ago.

Oh really? Wouldn't clay marbles break easy though? Also, how would you sell them? One at a time or sets?

This is real pretty! I think a black clay would be interesting--it would set off some of the colors, wouldn't it?

I would think so. Black is really good at making the colors around it seem more intense!

I think it'd make an egg look real nice, bet that you could find a nice little pattern for it to have.

Yeah me too... I'm always a tad nervous until I get some feedback from the buyer XD

When do you expect to be finished (so you can get said feedback)? I so very hope they don't want something real big changed at the very end! @@

Hoping to get it done by the end of the day. The buyer lives kinda close so I don't have to ship it so that is soooo nice. I seem to have bad luck with shipping. Sometimes a box in a box with all kinds of padding still doesn't work D:

I've been lucky and never had to change anything for my buyer, they seem happy with what I give them :)

Oh, this is sweet. Is it an egg that would have rainbow dash in it or is it an egg inspired by the color theme of Rainbow Dash?

It could have rainbow dash in it but I don't think ponies hatch from eggs xD Maybe a dragon rainbow dash.... that might be scary.
