  1. That's beautiful, Val!

    I wonder if you covered the egg with Donna Kato's Repel Gel before adding the clay if you could then just break the egg out of the inside rather than having to dissolve it?

  2. Excellent! I really like this 🙂 Thanks Val. You could probably speed up the reaction without damaging the egg by gently(!) heating the vinegar + egg. I wouldn't boil it because of the vinegar fumes, and the egg may get bashed around. But for those impatient people like me, a little judicious heating in a pan should give you a faster dissolved egg. Signed Ex-Chem teacher who ran lots of Science Club experiments like this 🙂

  3. HI Val,
    Greetings from across the pond. This egg is gorgeous. It is definitely a labor of love and it's beautiful. You always give us amazing tutorials to inspire and teach us. Thank you so much my friend. As you would say, this is brilliant! Thanks for sharing this with us.

  4. Hi Val, that's brilliant and so pretty. I really want to make one now, loads of designs going through my head…lol! x

  5. Have u tried making s styrofoam egg? Emptying the egg seems like quite a job. However I will try it, thanks for sharing!

  6. Thank you Val, your egg is lovely.. Fascinating how the shell disappears. Val as we both live in the UK I wondered if you would be kind enough to tell me which oven you use to bake the polymer clay please. I'm really having problems with my main oven which fluctuates terribly so have used my halogen oven but it's not doing the job either. Thank you for your help and great videos. I always learn something new and have a laugh too. Blessings

  7. WHAT A BEAUTIFUL IDEA, I USED TO WRAP THE HOLLOW EGG SHELL WITH DIFERANT COLORED COILS FROM POLYMERE CLAY, BUT THIS IS AMAZING AND VERY EASY TO DO, I HAVE TO TRY THIS ONE,, WOULD BE NICE TOO I WOULD SAY WITH CRYSTALS AND GLASS PEARLS,, LOVE THIS ONE THANKYOU ,

  8. Val, I really love your idea. Love the vinegar bath to dissolve the egg. I think it is really like a great science experiment. Now to completely change the subject, how is newly married life going? You and David have your first Argument, yet? I bet not! 😊

  9. Another egg video! Love it. Your other egg is still on my to do list, I have hollow eggs at the ready. Since before Easter, lol. Thank you for another great video.

  10. Another grand video! I have been meaning to try this ever since watching your last hollow egg tutorial! If you completely baked the framework instead of just doing a partial bake, would it be strong enough to hold up without the egg underneath? I was just thinking that it would be easier, and faster, to dissolve the egg if there was less clay on it.

  11. Wow… I absolutely LOVE your egg! I am definitely going to be making one. And what an interesting 'science experiment' with the white vinegar dissolving the eggshell! I would never have thought that would happen. I'm surprised it doesn't affect the clay… XXX

  12. Hi Val, I hope you're well.
    I need some advice please.
    I have made an a4 sized fairy door that's almost an inch thick in places (where some of the flowers are) I'm new to polymer clay and I'm not sure how long to bake it for. I've put a lot of time and effort into it and I'm frightened of ruining it.
    I normally bake things at a lower temperature then what it says on the pack so I don't burn them but I'm worried about going the other way and it ending up too fragile.
    can you advice me on how to bake it please as I trust your judgement (-:
    (Also I'm going to tent it after seeing a tutorial on it, so that should help too)

  13. Hi Val. I've baked my fairy door and it turned out perfectly (-:
    I'm really happy with it. thanks again for the advice. I wish I could show you it though lol xx

  14. Hey ! i'm sorry i don't anderstand verry good english and i have not anderstand how you do with the egg. You empty the egg and cook it then ?

  15. Love this beautiful egg! Can't wait to try it! I'm going to try using soda rather than vinegar. I heard of a science project that demonstrated with egg shells that cola and sodas eat away at tooth enamel. Hope it works.

  16. That's beautiful, can you do this technic using playdoh or other homemade clay types which are not polymer clay please … thanks very much. I'll be sharing this on my facebook pages xx

  17. I tried another egg project with a styrofoam egg and after decorating and baking it you just put a couple drops of acetone in hole onto the Styrofoam and it dissolves it instantly! You pull just a little piece out that's left over. Made my life so much easier with same results! Lol I love your videos!

  18. 😮WOW😮 ~ I’ve never seen anything like this before ~ soooooo 😎 ~ I’m so going to try this ~ 🤣 👌🏾 you’ve hooked me 👉🏾I’m a new subscriber!!

  19. This is truly amazing and quite beautiful! Definitely makes me want to make one of my own! Thank you for the information.
