Egg-cited for Easter!

It's April and just seventeen days away from Easter - time for a bunny to get ready!

Always on the lookout for something new to tangle, I found papier mache eggs in the Easter section of our local craft shop.  They are small - about 2 1/2 inched high - and just the perfect brown hue.  There is a light varnish on them, so sanding with a fine grade sandpaper made the surface much friendlier for a Micron and Gelly Roll pen.  The surface is also uneven in most spots and a bit more challenging to tangle on the curves, but overall, fun to tangle!

Here is my first one -

  2. It's beautiful. I just played around with tangling on a hard-boiled egg. Doesn't look as nice as yours. I'm deciding whether or not to blog about it.

    1. I wonder if a larger Micron - an 08 maybe - or an Identi-pen would give you more control on a hard boiled egg...

    2. I used the identi-pen...the microns didn't work at all. And I added color with Sharpies.
