Thanks for stopping by.
Just got in from work,
Ready for something completely different?
It being Easter and such,
I got caught up in the celebrations and decided to join in.
Not sure eggsactly what I was thinking about when
I bought this made-in-China artefact:
or even all his friends:
Must be cracking up.
Certainly wasn’t a spiritual moment, although
in my defence, they ARE from Waitrose.
So a better class of plastic egg I’m sure.
I suppose the fact that they opened must have been the convincer:
But honestly, Dios mio! What a yolk!
Where was my scrambled brain when these fell in my basket???
I have been known to buy crap before now,
but vile plastic eggs??
Then I had a light bulb moment.
I took an eggucated guess,
and figured out that it might stick.
And it did!
Dab it all over with an applicator.
What’s the worst that can happen?
Wild Plum first...
Got a bit tricky at the ends because of hold it...
but that’s where the tweezers I bought
but have never used came in handy.
Check this out!!!
Fabergé or what?!
(could do the inside too, but that would cost eggstra...)
Add some Stream colour next.
That looks more blue and purple than Stream!
So let’s add some gold leaf from the Krylon pen,
like the old polished stone trick...
Dab it on,
These look so cool!!
So now curiosity has the better of me.
Alcohol inks are translucent, right?
So what if I change to a different egg colour?
This is getting eggciting!
I knew it!
Stream on Yellow:
Now add some Butterscotch...
Well fry an egg!
Will you look at that!
Who’d have thunk it...
Still got a few to go,
but at least these will get used instead of binned!
I’ve got until Fryday to work out what to fill them with!
