Step by step dragon eggs craft

Supplies for a dragon eggs craft

  • air drying clay
  • Acrylic paint
  • gloves
  • clay tools
  • (biodegradeble) glitter
  • varnish
  • water

Steps for your dragon eggs

  • cover your table, put on an apron and the gloves
  • take some clay. Don’t give too much clay to little hands. The less clay the easier it will be to mold!
  • put some drops of acrylic paint on the clay and start kneading so the color mixes with the clay! If you want it darker, just put some more paint on the clay.
  • roll the clay into a ball. Try to remove the cracks so the ball becomes smooth.
  • try to shape the ball into an egg by rolling the upper side a bit.
  • now you have an egg in a lovely color. By using the clay tools you can give the dragon egg a pattern.
  • roll the egg into the glitter.
  • Let your dragon egg dry. Every inch normally takes about 24 hours to dry, so let it have enough time to dry up.
  • When the egg is dry, you can put the varnish on. (That prevents the glitter from falling off!)
