The Birth of Petrie Raincaller
Please note that my materials were colored with lesser dye so the colors are only fairly accurate. Also I was so absorbed in my work that I forgot to take pictures so there is huge progess between each picture. The urls are to a closer look to the picture below.

(It closes with a button to be a stage one egg)

Stage 3 the egg becomes a bed https://i.imgur.com/5nDDxIP.jpg
(the petles of the nest and ready to hatch egg become a blanket for little Petrie)

If interested, here's the full post to all of the pics, as I've passed over a few things.
For this, I'll be using air-drying clay.
Done with the sculpting.
I then painted all of the pieces, which is done for the most part. (As I did a few touch ups later.)
The Bulbori is done.
(Yes, I'm aware the the ears aren't perfectly aligned/or the same size, I tried to fix that during sculpting, but I've had it with the ears, so I didn't bother.)
About the egg, there are some syleties(Aeridini, Lunemara, & Nephini) flying above it, though you can't see them all in this one pic.
I'm now realizing that I haven't talked that much about the basket. All of it was taken from my room. (Because I hoard apparently. :b)
& although you can't see it, there's tissue paper on/in the basket.
& it's done! c:

I was inspired by the Dawnbreaker Aeridini's and their names, and decided to create "Rosemary Woodstem" out of some rosemary and flowers I had growing in my garden :)

So, I was a bit supply limited so what I thought was going to be an easy time ended up becoming horribly frustrating. I didn't have a clear marker on hand so I opted for brief tea stains to adjust the coloring, wash off mistakes, and otherwise tamp down a horribly bright white egg.
Fun? Yes. Would I ever subject myself to this again? Probably not, knowing what I know now.
(quick science lesson, tea is acidic. Somehow I forgot this fact.)
So this is the story about how my life got flipped up, turned upside down from one little egg up to no good, causing trouble in my neighborhood.
Golden oolong tea x1
Hardboiled white egg x1
Cup for tea staining x1
Pack of Prismacolor markers x1
Ballpoint Pen x1
Assorted fake flower heads I had on hand from another crafting project
Piece of crinkled ribbon x1 (not shown in first pic because I forgot to get it with the other supplies, d'oh)
2.0 mm mechanical pencil x1
Magazine x1 (to keep my desk from getting hot glue gunned while I worked and was multitasking with other things)
Paper towels for drying egg between staining
Hot glue gun x1
Screaming cat x1 (for moral support, not shown)
So I originally actually set out to use green tea... Only to find out I didn't have that on hand either. Opted to use the oolong tea I did have but knowing it wouldn't stain as darkly. Figured it would work out alright, but not exactly as planned.
Tried to look for a theme based on cherry blossoms to match the flowers on hand and the spring theme I was going for. Ended up not finding one and making a Faelora (since they're my favorite pet) design out of the generator.
While I was doing my initial 20 minute tea staining to reduce the whiteness of the shell, I started working on a sketch on paper since trying to sketch and draw on an eggshell without breaking it was going to be impossible. Turned out to be a good move.
(ignore the fact it looks like a Lupora, I can't draw cervines at all)
Pencil lineart. Little messy so I gave the egg a tea bath afterwards. May have been a mistake. Ballpoint pen was completely useless despite my best efforts at relining the pencil after it was dry.
Went to marker. The struggle. Prismacolors don't work well on egg shells, let me just say. A lot of quick rinses happened between stages after letting ink dry somewhat to clear mistakes. Also some shell cracking from the tea. Sigh. Opted not to color the rest of the egg due to it starting to break in the back.
Coloring while letting hot glue gun heat up.
Didn't know what to do with the last flower head, so I used it to make the egg look like an Aerdini egg.
Also forgot to handwrite 2020 easter event before, so here you go.

First time adding off-site images, here it goes!
So i made this reference image (with some color scheme help from @Kitten404)
and here's the process:
(I first considered using an egg I had crocheted but it was too tight to attach anything to without breaking my needles) (Initially I was going to make the egg light green but the crocheted egg situation changed it)
Added some color
Attached some sparkly felt (you can't really see the sparkles :( )
Felted the petals (and the leaves but I forgot to take a picture of that)
and the final result!
The antennae were hard, my plan was to use the yellow yarn you can see in the first image but I ended up just using pipecleaners after stabbing myself too many times. This is the first needlefelting project I have done that didn't have a crocheted base, and it was really fun!

I based my egg off of my turquoise fire Ferrikki, using some leaves from my garden and paint.

I did a grass woven Qitari and woven egg
Posted: 4/23/2020 at 3:19 PM
Woohoo! Finally finished!
I decided to make a little nest of Griffi eggs as they are probably my favorite sylesti :3
Here we've got 3 little siblings waiting to bake
Andddd here is their older sibling who just hatched C:
All baked and started to paint em
And here we are!
And here's one with some better lighting as my hand wasn't holding up the paper c:

I did traditional easter eggs with food dye and watercolor pencil. For the first three I forgot to take in-progress pictures, but I have pictures for the rest. ....Hopefully the lack of style makes it obvious they're made by the same person.
First three eggs:
The rest, waiting to be dressed up:
Sketch in some details:
Try not to cover up the details:
Oops. Oh well, no turning back now:
All together now:
Left to right, top to bottom: Nephini, Ny'Vene, Aeridini, Griffi, Ferrikki, Lighira, Ryori. Some of them are based on real themes but q-tips and food dye proved inadequate for detailing so I was kind of stuck with the four and a half colors of watercolor pencil I dug up from the depths of the craft closet.

Here's my submission! It's a nephini egg. It's not perfect, and I lost the photos I took making it so I had to take new ones, but I worked really hard on it and at least wanted to share.
