2005 State Fair of Texas – 1st
This is an ostrich egg
that I decided to enter in the Decorated Egg category at the
2005 State Fair of Texas, in the non-professional adult division. I had never entered any of my work
in a contest before. Imagine my surprise when I discovered
I had won a blue ribbon! This egg was on display during
the run of the Fair in October, in display case #64. I sanded
this shell for over three hours before working on it in wax.
