About this Project

Cast yourself as the Mother of Mermaids with these scaled and bejeweled mermaid eggs. Create a clutch of under-the-sea-inspired eggs using modeling clay and metallic paint.

Create your own, snap a picture, and share using #ACMooreInspired.

  • 1
    Mix equal parts modeling clay and metallic paint. Knead into a small ball. Work the clay onto the egg in small layers, rolling and smoothing on a covered surface.
  • 2
    Embellish eggs using sequins, seashells, pearls, and gems. Create a scaled pattern by pressing sequins into clay. Wrap a strand of pearls around the egg, and brush metallic paint over the pearls to blend into the clay. Use the icing tip to create a circular mermaid scale pattern.

    Let eggs dry overnight.
