Well, last summer a friend came over so I could help her make some hypertufa faces. There was a little mix left over so I told her we could just dump it out. Instead she made an egg and went home. Her faces cured and so did the egg. I kept walking by that egg and came up with an idea. I would mosaic that egg like and Easter egg. I had just gotten some pricey mirror glass but I knew it wouldn't take much. Hubby was instantly on board for the grouting. We decided to surprise our friend with this egg when she came to pick up her stuff.
She was delighted with it but the joke was on us. She didn't even Remember making the egg!
I have went on and made these eggs whenever I have a little hypertufa left from another project and then I mosaic them at my leisure.
I started some last week. I put pencil lines in the center of the egg and glass this first. That keeps everything straight. I go round and around working on about five at a time.
Then hubby works his "grouty majic" and they are done just lacking a little cleaning. They are about 6by4inches. They throw off sparks in the sun like crazy.
