I used to paint eggs using water-based acrylic paints, and a clear enamel glaze. I also did portraits on eggs which are time-honored heirlooms for families in Europe, passed down from generation to generation. The egg shown here is what I call my "carousel" design, showing 3 of the 4 horses.
The egg measures exactly two & a half inches high.

July 22, 2012: I found out mere moments ago - my "Handpainted Hen Egg - Carousel" piece has received a Daily Deviation for July 22th! My first ever for my artwork! I'm numb, I'm stunned, my hands are trembling as I try to type this update. My profound thanks to the wonderful *vespera
for suggesting it, and to ^UnicornReality
for featuring it! This is another amazing addition to the welcome I have received in so many ways since I returned to become active once again on dA.
