What's on my desk today?

it's Wednesday and on my desk today there are... brains? ... a road kill?

Nope, two Easter eggs to be. I took two transparent plastic eggs, covered them with cotton compresses that I crinkeled, starched it with sugar solution to make it hard and painted with grey acrylic paint. As soon as they are dry I will decorate them.

I love all your crafty ideas - especially the eggs. I remember making similar with infants and we used modroc which works like the stuff they make plaster casts for broken legs with. It worked well if a bit messy!
