COLORED SEED BEADS GLUED ON HOLLOW EGGS






I prepared two eggs by blowing out the insides and cleaning them with water.  Then I drew lines on the shells where I wanted to glue beads.  Seed beads are very tiny to work with and can be picked up with toothpicks and placed carefully into the tacky glue, setting aside to dry.  I did a little at a time, as this is very tedious work.  The egg on the left had the background filled in with gold glitter.  

This is a good way to save eggs that have been cracked.  The seed beads cover up any blemishes.
