I think you’ll like to try an egg carving. Fox Chapel Publishing asked me to review their book, Quick & Cute Carving.
I enjoyed the book, wrote the review and broke out a piece of EZboard to carve the chicken shown on the cover. Hen Eggs are now in the Store so you can carve anything your imagination allows! Only $1.50 each. Paint with acrylics like I did for an easy finish.
