Those are nice, particularly the owl.
I agree-- the owl's my favorite, too.Just noticed that the reflection of the overhead light fixture seen on the ghost egg makes the ghost look like he sports a spectral crown above his head!
Hi Max,My hubby & I had to laugh at the thought of my eggs posted on a blog about a severed head and a drunken one at that! (I'm actually a director for a self-help recovery program for women alcoholics - oh the irony!)The 'owl' egg is about as scary as my eggs get... although, personally, I freak out over spiders. Dare I say, I was inspired to do these designs while reading my mom's 'Martha S' magazine... I never heard the end of that from the husband... although he loves the eggs too!These eggs were quite fun for 'pysanky' style eggs (apply design using a writing tool & hot wax and dip in assorted dyes). Probably about an hour and a half to finish. A bit longer though to blow out the egg and put a couple coats of polyurethane. This egg pic is the most viewed & commented on my flickr site - it's a Halloween fav.Thanks for the spotlight :) and keep your head on straight or not! Becky
Thanks for the comment and info, Becky! I wondered about the amount of time and labor required to make such great looking Halloween Eggs.Hmmm, may have to commission an artist to do a "Max the drunken severed head" next year. One would be as hollow as the other.
I keep expecting to see a huge scorpion hatch from one of those.
