The Elephant Family have supplied selected artists with ostrich eggs so they can replicate their giant eggs. They're being sold at the pop up shop in Selfridges alongside mugs and lots of other merchandise produced to help support the Big Egg Hunt.

loves lovely, are they transfers you used?

I saw your egg outside Liberty's last weekend - great spot!

Aww thanks Jess.
Yes indeedy they're transfers - I drew the design & then screenprinted it onto decal paper, then I coated it with varnish.
Once dry, you can cut out the shapes & place them in water, the ink sticks to the varnish and it floats off the decal paper so it can then be easily applied to different surfaces.
In short, it's magic!
