Introduction: Wasp and Grass Resin Egg With Rose Stand

I have the entire process ready to be made into an Instructable, but I wanted to get this in before the deadline.

Unbeknownst to me, a wasp crawled into the chicken egg I had blown out and became trapped when I poured resin into the eggshell. My original plan was to set just a real blade of grass into the resin. When I peeled the shell off, there was the wasp!

The stand is made of wild rose branches woven together into a tower, with a wreath of rose hips holding the resin egg.

    Congratulations on being a Finalist. I studied your entry the other night, becauses many years ago, I was using a product to "dip" my eggs in to create a hardened finish (it is no longer on the market). Anyway, I had a gecko lay an egg inside one of the dipped eggs, and it just so happened that when I was removing it from the drying rack, I accidentally broke that egg, and inside was a "preserved" baby gecko. It's skin was so thin you could see all of the internal organs, and it was preserved in this resin! My Best Wishes to you. Carole B.

    This is so incredibly rad, I can't contain it...

    ..clever, grrrl! Where will this beauty live?
