Smeared and Smudged members hop
The hop theme this month is to decorate an egg, I very nearly didn't sign up to this one as I didn't think I would have time. I am glad I did sign up...even if it was only yesterday morning that I did LOL
I knew I wanted my egg to be a dragon egg I just wasn't sure how I was going to go about it, then I remembered that Haunted Design House have got a steampunk junk and an egg shell would normally end up in the bin so I figured it's junk enough so i'd make a steampunk dragons egg.
The egg was blown, cleaned and dried then was given a coat of acrylic paint (the sort you get to paint models) I realised that trying to paint an egg and keep it still wasn't going to work so I ended up just rubbing the paint all over with my hands, which was rather satisfying. When the blu was dry I added some no nails glue and stuck on my watch parts, once that was dry it had a few blasts of brass spray paint before adding a little bit more of the blue to blend it. the image I have used is from smeared Ink and is called Hanging Dragons. Everything else I used has come from my stash, I set fire to some of the straw as a dragons lair wouldn't be complete without a bit of singeing :D
All in all this was a fantastic project to make...I got to get covered in paint, pull apart bones, smeared some fake blood around and set fire to things! I do hope that you will hop along and look at all the other fab projects on offer today.
