This egg to a bit longer to make than the pink one I posted last and was more difficult to work with because it is built on top of a real egg shell. While working on this I had to be very gentle because of how fragile an egg shell is. The egg is very light weight but I'd like to work on using even less clay in order to make it even lighter. There is a small hole in the bottom to allow the air to escape the egg so that it wont expand and break because it is hollow during baking.
The tedious work that goes into these eggs actually almost makes me miss the simplicity of spikes! One of these eggs can take as long as a dragon sculpture to make. [link]
