I'm working on a series of four Faberge Egg ATCs and this is the second in the series. To see the first click here. The engineering on this one was more complicated than the first as I wanted the white swan to appear in the middle, whether or not the egg is opened or closed.
I purchased the German Scrap (black swan, laurel leaves, and decorative gold piece under the white swan) from Collage Stuff. I added the gold to the black swan using gold Rub’n Buff. I purchased the metal charms & findings from Fancifuls Inc. I purchased the metal picture frame from Ebay. I painted the metal items first with black, then lightly with gold, then I applied gold Rub n’ Buff. The point of this process was to give them dimension.
