Introduction: Egg Minion
Well, we all love Minions. And we all dream of having one for each one of us. If you're like me then, you're at right place. These cute minions will make your day. As this is the time of easter again, i'll show you how to make a minion for this special occasion using egg shells.
Step 1: What All Do We Need.?
2. M-Seal (fast curing epoxy compound)
3. Colours -Yellow, White, Purple (I will suggest Acrylic Paints, because of its shine when it dries off)
4. Paint Brushes
6 . Paper (Any Rough paper)
Step 2: The Egg Shell.
This is a very crucial step, as we need to empty the egg, without actually breaking the whole whole egg shell. So first of all, try to make a small hole at the top of the egg (make it as small as possible). Now, empty the egg into a container and make an omelet (my favourite :P). Well you can use it for any thing you want to, as we only need egg shell for this instructable.
Step 3: Paper Mache
Now, we need to cover that hole. For this we need, paper mashe (paper dipped in a lotion of 60% water + 40% fevicol). Cover the hole with this paper. Try to use as minimum water as you can so that it'll dry sooner and would be easy for you to cover it. Once covered, let it dry for an hour or two. After that it will be solid as shell.
Step 4: Making the Goggles.
For the goggles, we'll need the M-Seal. See the images for more detailing. Let it dry out for an hour. Once dried of it'll be rock solid.
Step 5: Lets Paint It.
Now you'll need a little bit of creativity and a hand full brushes with colours. We're are using Yellow colour as the whole body colour. Purple for the dress and white for eyes. As i said a little bit of creativity is expected here.
Step 6: Detailing + Final Touches
Now give it a final touch. Well eyes speaks a lot and that's why i suggest you to make it as perfect as you can.
give the final touches using a black marker (permanent marker will work).
Innovation is always possible. Go ahead and make one for you and for your loved one's.
The one with the heart was for someone special. :P
