German Cardboard Easter Eggs were part of my childhood and I love them dearly.
My miniature versions are made with paper, on to handmade molds, and the decorations are replicas of antique lithographed scraps.
I like to vary the pictures as much as possible and I can never decided if there is one that I like more than another.
The miniature eggs are are surprisingly robust but, just like the real thing, they will deform if they get wet / too damp.
I have spent most of this morning trying to photograph the batch I have just made and have come to the conclusion that it is impossible to get a decent close-up, although I did get some very interesting effects.
A minor point –
All the antique / vintage eggs, that I have seen, have the top of the picture at the fat end of the egg.
This looks odd to me and so I always make some with the top of the picture at the pointy end of the egg, as well as the “correct” way round.
