These cracking Superheroes and villains were great fun for the Art cabin kids to make. Created from eggshells that had been washed, dried and glued back together with PVA glue. The eggs were then covered with a layer of tissue paper and glue to hide any cracks, this process also makes the egg stronger (it’s worth doing one end of the egg first, letting that dry and then completing the other end).
The features of the chraracter were drawn on the egg in pencil, acrylic paints were applied to add colour and detail.
No egg was complete without its hero/villain mobile either. Below you can see some wonderful eggsamples.
As you can imagine I annoyed the kids with my terrible yokes… er I mean jokes .
