Easter Eggs in French Style Part 1

Hello creative friends!

Easter is just around the corner and it's the best time to create some new Easter eggs. Outside it's anything but springlike, on the contrary snowflakes are falling from the sky again, omg :-)
More beautiful is it now in the warm and cosy crafty studio.

I used an old wooden egg as basic, very rustic and natural and absolutely perfect for me.
First of all I made some spring motives with silicon moulds and an acrylic mass from the DIY store. The parts are still flexible even after drying, which is why you can use them very well on real Easter eggs. You can find two examples here tomorrow.

Together with a linen fabric (from an old potato sack) everything was glued on with a hot glue gun. Now I have coated everything with a covering layer of Chalky Finish 'Vintage' from Americana Decor. Now came the most difficult part of the work ?? 

 ...wait until it is properly dried ;-)

On the next day a layer of Antiquing Cream 'Titanium White', 
let it dry for a short time and wipe off with a damp sponge at some places on the surface.
 At the end I used Metallic Lustre 'Champagne Ice' for some shiny highlights.

Thanks for your visit!
