We’ve decorated this ostrich egg using a mixed medium. What this means, is that we’ve used two different art forms on the egg. The first is decoupage: the animals are a high-resolution image that is glued onto the egg. The egg is then coated with several layers of epoxy. Once it is dry, the egg is sanded to a smooth finish. The rest of the egg is hand-painted to make a completely unique one-of-a-kind piece of art. The egg is finished with several more layers of epoxy, sanding in between each layer. This is what gives the finished product the high gloss, glass-like finish. The eggs we use are non-fertile eggs that would normally be discarded. The egg is emptied and then sterilized, so that there is no animal matter remaining in the shell.

This egg is a whimsical egg. The fairy is sitting on a flower, surrounded by leaves. The yellow background is contrasting enough to make the fairy stand-out.

This egg comes boxed with a standard wooden ring stand, as seen illustrated above. The stands in the other pictures are not included in the purchase price and are available for purchase on our website.

Our eggs and stands are also sold at Disney Animal Kingdom and Disney Animal Kingdom Lodge.

Fairies

Do you believe in fairies?

As children when a tooth falls out, we are told to place it under the pillow and the tooth fairy will come and take it away. In exchange the fairy will leave money in its place. The word Fairy is derived from the Latin word fata, meaning fate, and the old French word faerie, meaning enchantment.Fairies were often said to be invisible, usually of smaller stature than humans. It was believed they could be helpful to humans, but might be dangerous and evil if offended. They were often considered just mischievous and whimsical in a childlike manner, but were believed to have magical powers.
