Need a few ornaments to add to your spring Easter Egg Tree? These were made with M5117 Egg with Carrot and M5118 Egg with Flower and PaperClay. The PaperClay was pushed into the molds which had been brushed with cornstarch, released and dried for 24-36 hours on a fine drying rack, then sanded to smooth the edges and finally painted with acrylic paints.
With the paint dry, a loop of ribbon was glued onto the backside and then a piece of coordinating paper cut to size was glued over the the ribbon ends to give the back a more finished look.I chose papers that had colors related to the paint colors on the front of the ornaments. I really liked the paper in pinks, aquas, greens and lavender that reminded me of Faberge eggs.
This could be a fun project for kids who are on spring break. Make the ornaments one day and sand and paint them another day. PaperClay and 2 ounce bottles of acrylic paint are readily available at your arts and craft stores. Get out your bunny cookie molds too.
