I was asked by The Big Egg Hunt to create an egg for their charity egg hunt. Very Egg-citing!
I designed my egg to look like an old globe with a little blue tit sat on the top using the same technique for the bird and nest which I’d used for the recent Porcelain shoot with Tim. .
The egg hunt starts on the 21st of February and is sponsored by Fabergé. Get involved through their website and hunt the eggs which have been created by many artists in London. All the money raised goes to two charities – Elephant Family and Action for Children. The winner of the hunt wins a bespoke Fabergé necklace and the eggs get auction off at the end at Sotheby’s to raise money. I’m so pleased to be a part of it and please help support this amazing event!
Working out how to papier-mâché a round object on to an egg shaped object proved to be rather challenging. .
We worked it out and here I am doing what I love – Papier-mâché-ing!
The nest and bird now need to be finished. The nest was pretty messy to cover in paint and took 4 days to dry!
Here it is finished. It looks quite surreal.
