Painted Egg Ornaments

Friends have been told not to stand still too long in my presence or risk being painted. This has been said because of the variety of objects I have been known to paint.

This summer we began to raise chickens and quail. One day as I was washing eggs it occurred to me I should find something creative to do with them! I still am not sure what to do with the abundance of quail eggs, but I've begun to paint the chicken eggs as Christmas ornaments.

I have found that painting eggs takes a lot longer than even painting glass ornaments. I'm enjoying making a work of art from something so simple and so readily available at my house. Because they take so long, I have very few available yet and this particular egg has already sold.
Keep checking my website over at The Creator's Porch to see when I have new ones available. Currently there is a Santa available and a few more should be ready soon!
