Tutorial: Cracked Eggs
Tutorial with Veselina Koleva
We'll be making brown eggs but you can also use pure white for white egg-shells instead of the following mixture.
Now we'll mix the color for our egg-shells.
Make clay balls with the following sizes:
1.2cm (½") from the white clay
0.6cm (¼") from the caramel-colored clay
0.4cm (a little less than ¼") from the chocolate colored clay
The color you will receive is supposed to resemble this one. If it seems to dark add a little white and mix again. The color doesn't have to be exactly like mine as even each real egg has a different color. Make it as you like!
Take two of your glass beads and powder them slightly with cornstarch.
Powder your fingertips too.
Make two tiny balls (one for each bead) with diameter about 2-3mm (just over 1/16" - just over 3/32") out of the brownish clay.
Take a bead and cover the half of it with the tiny ball of clay we just made.
First make a little snake, then press the clay with your fingers so that it sticks to the bead. Spread it equally on the half of the bead.
