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.
