It is that time of year again for a Hippty Hoppity Steampunk Spring Blog Hop with our host Leslierahye.  Be sure to visit all the participants blogs and leave a comment.  Links to all blogs can be found at the bottom of this post!

To prep the plastic eggs glue the seam with Tacky Glue.  Gesso two thin layers of torn tissue paper on the egg.  I used old sewing pattern tissue. Dry between layers.  The gesso & tissue paper make a great surface to apply paint.   Paint a couple of layers on the eggs using Art Anthology Sorbet Dimension Paint - Gold, Baby Blue Eyes & Kenyan.  With Tacky glue add all the gems and bling that make these FABER-PUNK EGGS!

These are absolutely wonderful. I had to scroll back up and look when I read "locking washers" in the supplies. I never would have guessed! Great project!

Fabulous bejeweled and punky eggs. Love those paint colors and the elegance from the embellishments.

Lyneen, These are wonderful and I can't wait for the kids to get home from school and work so we can try this out! Thanks for sharing a fun project that older children can do.

Lyneen - Faber-punk eggs. You crack me up LOL And that's EXACTLY what they look like.

These are delightful - and I love the tip about locking washers instead of buying those expensive little gears in the art supply stores! Thanks!

Have a great Easter!
