I saw this idea in my Paula magazine and wanted to try them. I was starting to think it was a stupid idea since it took so long, but I am pleased with the end result. My hope is that Braden will be able to keep these eggs FOREVER (especially considering the time and effort I put into these stinking eggs), but Brad has informed me that since he is a boy he highly doubts that he will care! Anyway...here they are 3 days and 9 coats of paint later.... YES I SAID 9!
