Handpainted with acrylics on a REAL egg, then varnished with polyurethane. Egg stand/neck sculpted from polymer clay. Clothing/decorations made from various fibers, fabrics, findings and feathers.
Another new series of my artworks are the decorative ladies called "Flapper girls" -- including Francine Flapper! Francine and her friends are made of REAL eggs, with sculpted necks and hands (made of polymer clays.)
Francine is handpainted with acrylics, then varnished with satin sheen polyurethane. She is then placed on her neck/stand and decorated in the roaring 20's style as a flapper. Francine and her friends have shoulder wrap/dresses made of ribbon, lace, felt and/or fabric, then decorated with beads, ribbon, jewels and feathers.
Since these are real eggs, they should be cared for as if they are fragile art works, and kept out of direct sunlight. In time the egg contents will evaporate and harden permanently.
Francine and my other Flapper girls will be offered for sale or given as gifts. She belongs to Mickie Turk.

I love all the Flapper girls! I hardly knew which one to pick for me! (per Mickie Turk)
