Robin's Eggs

My egg obsession continues.  And my obsession with painting things blue.

I bought some craft eggs at Michaels last weekend when they were 40% off.  They were not bad looking in their unaltered state actually, but I really wanted them to look like robin's eggs.

I painted them with a custom mix of craft paint - one was a little too pale, the other a little too vivid.

Then I added some speckles with a toothpick.  It is possible that toothpicks are my favourite craft tool.

I put them in a moss "nest".  I'm fairly certain that robin's don't actually build their nests out of moss, but they probably also don't have eggs the size of chicken eggs.  I'm not overly concerned with authenticity.

Happy Easter!
