Strong as Steel, Delicate as an Eggshell

Alexa from Pop Elegantiarum here, sharing another crafty film find. Who would think to etch a portrait of the formindable Bette Davis on an eggshell? Emily over at The May of Teck Club, that's who. She did it the hard way.



this is crazy... but kind of smart. a dichotomous juxtaposition surely.

how does one etch on an egg though. I must check it out as i have a thing for eggs.

Emily explains it all on that site, Nat. I didn't understand a word of it, but then I am not an egg man myself.

This is weird, but amazing. I'd like a Marlene Dietrich egg myself. Or perhaps Ingrid Bergman.


what i don't get is that she will actually send you the egg. how would it really make it to you uncracked.

"She'll let you take her home (it whets her appetite)
She'll lay you on the throne
She's got Bette Davis eggs".

Lame joke aside, the artist has alot of talent. I wouldn't mind a red coloured egg with the Kidman in full Moulin Rouge mode...or the Kidman from the 2009 Oscars in regular eggshell white to match her dress.

It does remind me of those people who can draw elaborate pictures on grains of rice.
