But the most important thing I learned from this whole experience was tenacity. I learned how not to give up when trying to do a really difficult thing.
It's my opinion that this book can be life changing. I finally bought my own copy and I display it proudly on my bookshelf.
The author clearly describes in great detail how to take an egg, empty it, dry it, and carve it. She often paints the outside of the egg or sometimes leaves the shell natural. She also puts various trims and decorations on the outside. Most of the eggs are cut with little hinged doors so they open and close. Most hold little scenes and others have velvet linings--jewellery boxes. There are many colour photos, drawings and even photos of Carl Faberge's eggs. Egg decorating has changed somewhat over the years, but the basics laid out in this book have not changed.
Thank you Rosemary Disney for sharing your knowledge in how to create amazing decorated eggs.
