Game of Thrones Dragon Eggs

Season 5 of Game of Thrones is almost here so what better way to celebrate than with beautiful metallic dragon eggs for Easter!   Kick your egg hunt up a notch and use these as the prize eggs or make them for your special Game of Thrones super fan.  
Happy Easter!
Hide them in a special box
New season starts on April 12th
I can't wait until these hatch!
Watch the short video tutorial here
YOU'LL NEED
Sticky back foam sheets
Scissors
Toothbrush
Plastic Easter eggs
 Cut the sticky foam into 3/4" x 1/2" wide squares
Trim them into the shape of a guitar pick
Peel and stick them to the bottom of the egg as shown
Stagger the next row (like shingles on a roof)
Continue all the way to the top of the egg
 Dab the Mixed Media Modeling Paste on the end of the egg to add texture
When dry paint the eggs with DecoArt Dazzling Metallics
*Rest them in a cardboard tube while they dry
Add dark brown to the metallics and add dimension to the eggs with a dry brush
Lighten the brown with some white paint and splatter the eggs using a toothbrush

  2. Suggestion - Use the white also to lighten the main egg color and dry brush tips of scales, especially at top, to effectively add "highlights".
