This class is about to master the egg by cutting designs into the shell with different shaped cutting bits. I will provide the dust collectors so we can work neat and clean, but you have to bring along your own rotary type of cutter, making sure your collet fits a 3/32” size stem.(Dremels are OK). I will provide the necessary cutting bits to complete the design. Both 4 hour classes are limited to SIX students.  We will work on a medium, sized goose egg with patterns decaled on the egg ready to cut.  The front depicts a flower design and the back a snowflake.  There will be time to go through the vinegar-Clorox cleaning process and to demonstrate the decaling method.  Additional decal patterns & crystalling kit for the egg you cut will be available for extra cost if you wish to continue your adventure.  Closer to show date, I will mail you a detailed info package with photos to get you ready.  More info will be on my website: www.tinkaeggart.com

Your paid deposit secures your place in the class.

 Let’s start our engines and have fun!

Both designs are large goose egg ornaments.

There will be all the necessary prep work done for you to complete the project in class.  If you should choose to do both eggs, then once you finish one in class, since the technique is the same, the other can be done later at home.

The design on the front is repeated on the back side of each egg, not shown.

Also, much detailed decoration is on both sides of each ornament, not shown. 

Bring RET”s.
