Techniques & Ideas
for Egg Artistry
by Maureen Williams
A wide range of peel-off sticker packs suitable for egg artistry are available. These metallic stickers are more commonly used to decorate paper, card, plastic, glass, metal, wood and other surfaces. However, for our purposes in egg artistry, achieving the look of deeply embossed precious metal is incredibly easy using these stickers.
To add an elegant accent or special emphasis to your egging designs the outer gold sticker (shown as the black lines in the diagram below) is peeled off the waxy backing paper, leaving the white areas in the picture behind This fine gold outline is then applied to the shell. They can be left as an outline image or filled with glitter or imitation enamel as shown in the picture above
Reverse Image Stickers
All the little left over pieces (the white areas inside the black lines) are normally discarded. Using the reverse image technique described below, you are able to use all parts of the sticker for decorating purposes
Note: Micropore is a type of sticking plaster available at the Chemist or Pharmacy. It is a special non-stick tape, which is ideal to transfer the sticker pieces to the eggshell without sticking fast and damaging the surface.
