Learn the age old technique of egg blowing and then instead of just painting the blown egg, make it in to a fantastic looking dragon's egg in a few minutes with a bit of hot melt glue gun glue and some paint.
That's it, it couldn't really be simpler than that!
What you'll need:
- One hen's egg (free range) (or larger egg if you have it, duck, goose or even ostrich)
- Glue gun and a small amount of hot melt glue
- Spray paint, any colour will do, but black, red, green, gold or silver are the best
- a little bit of acrylic paint, for the distressing (black or dark brown)
When you've done, why not have a look at dadcando
, where you'll find free downloadable printables for an Egg Stand and Antique Egg Mailing box.
It's a great project for Easter, or any other time of year when Dragon Eggs are in season.
