Both of these eggs are cast with liquid concrete in a real egg and in a egg-shaped candle mould. The moulds are removed when dry and the concrete eggs are decorated with guinea fowl feathers and natural hemp.
Guide step 1
Step 1.
Casting in a real egg: Make a small hole in one end of an egg with a teaspoon. Prick a hole in the egg yolk with a skewer or similar. This is the easiest way of emptying the egg.
Guide step 2
Step 2.
Empty the egg white and the yolk.
Guide step 3
Step 3.
Pour ordinary cooking oil into the egg and distribute it by lightly shaking the egg. Now pour out the cooking oil. NB: The oil makes it easier to release the moulded egg at the end when the casting is finished.
Guide step 4
Step 4.
Mix 6 parts of Concrete craft powder to 1 part of water. Put the concrete mixture in a piping bag (disposable) and fill the egg. Let it harden for approx. 24 hours. A TIP! You can make a piping bag from a plain freezing bag by cutting a hole in the corner.
Guide step 5
Step 5.
Casting in an egg-shaped candle mould: Coat the mould with ordinary cooking oil (like before) and pour the concrete mixture into the mould. Leave to harden for approx. 24 hours.
Guide step 6
Step 6.
Removal of both types of moulds: Peel the egg shell off the concrete egg. You may need a knife. Separate the two-part candle mould and gently pry out the cast egg.
