Finally, it’s done. I was hoping to have it ready yesterday… well I actually did. It was entirely finished when I realized that it wouldn’t sit securely in an egg stand, so I had to sculpt a base. That’s *really* tricky when the egg is already carved. Somehow I managed to do it without breaking the egg and got the whole thing sealed up a couple hours ago. I posted about a zillion process photos of the painting process to instagram if you want to have a look at them, but I’ll just post the finished ones from other angles here.
I have a few other projects to finish up before I start on the next one, but it will likely be in the next couple days. I have a list of potential themes. The next egg is also a little long rather than round, so I’ll see which theme on my current list will work best with that shape.
