Easter Egg Boxes
I'm trying to make up for lost time here. I wanted to make something special for my DD's for Easter, and thought of jewelry boxes. I made a egg-shaped form, which might have been easier to do if we weren't vegetarians LOL Anyway, after a lot of trial and error, I finally made one to my satisfaction. I covered my homemade mold with sheets of clay ala Rock purses. Baked it, then removed the clay shell while still hot from the oven. The first worked well, but the second one broke in a couple of places. (*Note to self: Gold Bond powder is NOT an acceptable substitute for cornstarch) I've added feet to each, and flowers's in each DD's fav color. I've only finished one so far, one in the works, and one more to make. Hope I make my deadline!
Just thought I'd share. Photo's in Gallery
