Here are the blown eggs I decorated this year. This peacock egg is two-sided with a feather on the reverse. I did this egg with Sharpies, gold pen, watercolors and some adhesive jewels.
I actually made another peacock feather egg before this one. A friend at work was celebrating her birthday and I did this egg for her. It turned out so well that I decided to make a peacock egg for our family collection of Easter Eggs. You can see a few more of those eggs here.
Watercolor pens and adhesive jewels completed this design.
I also purchased a beautiful hand-painted goose egg (Kraslice) at the Farmer’s Market and a card with a photograph of more eggs done by the same artist, Lenka Glassner.
The sides have intricate details. All the white is where she has etched through the paint to reveal the eggshell underneath.
For more gorgeous pictures of her eggs and information on the “traditional lace-like etching” techniques of the Moravian region of the Czech Republic, go here.

Wishing you a happy Easter.
