To get the look of Jasperware, we called on candy molds and polymer clay to sculpt our decorations, then baked and glued them onto these dyed marvels.

How to do it

Part 1

Step 1

Wipe room-temperature hard-cooked or blown-out white eggs with distilled white vinegar; dry thoroughly. Dye various colors following egg-dye manufacturer's instructions. Remove from dye bath; gently dab with a paper towel and let dry completely.

Step 2

Soften polymer clay by kneading well. Press into cameo and fern silicone molds; make sure it's distributed evenly and all crevices are filled, and let it extend a bit over edges. Using a long, thin, flat knife, scrape off excess clay over top of molds to create level surfaces.

Step 3

Make egg-size nests out of aluminum foil and place on a baking sheet; place uncooked eggs inside. Flex molds and carefully remove cameo and fern reliefs. Lay one relief on each egg on sheet by holding clay by its edges and shaping it to follow egg's curves.

Step 4

Bake uncooked eggs with reliefs according to clay manufacturer's instructions. Let cool completely. Gently remove cameos and ferns from eggs. (Reuse these eggs to bake more reliefs, if desired; discard eggs when done.)

Step 5

Affix cameo and fern reliefs to dyed eggs using adhesive dots. (Reliefs can be removed and stored.)
