The secrets of good eggs | Polymer Clay Daily

The secrets of good eggs

These polymer covered eggs are remarkable not just for cheery seasonal fun but because they were created by students using an ingenious, no-fail method developed by Carol Simmons.

On the groups’ Facebook page, you can examine these eggs and other objects created last weekend at the Buckeye Bash in Dayton. Using kaleidoscope-patterned canes, Carol’s students created consistently successful veneers.

Her egg formula involves four strips of cane slices, some math calculations and a template. Unfortunately I left before all the secrets were revealed. The Ohio class was Carol’s dry run for her new class called “Intricate Cane Veneers.”

    Many thanks to Carol for her excellent demos and one-on-one help. She’s a generous teacher.
    We’re so glad you could join us for a while, Cynthia and appreciate you letting the world know about the Buckeye Bash. The committee does such a good job of organizing and the participants share ideas and friendship. Hurray for the Bash!

          Wow how egg-citing to have created such gorgeous eggs. That Buckeye Bash sounds like a load of fun.

            Love those eggs! What kind of eggs are they covering? The plastic ones, or wooden ones???

              Blown out egg shells…regular chicken ones. There may have been some other species too but all real.
