As we gear up for Easter, rather than working with your class to dye eggs for their baskets, why not encourage them to doodle their own Fabergé eggs?
Fabergé eggs have acquired an almost cult-like status in popular culture as symbols of the power and wealth of the Russian Empire. Created between 1885 and 1917, the intricate, jeweled eggs were originally made as Easter presents for the wives and mothers of the Russian aristocracy.
Would you believe that there are likely only 57 Fabergé eggs in existence today?!
A Fabergé egg is a unique and festive gift for students to share with their families. Plus, they can enjoy their designs as Easter decorations for years to come. Since Fabergé eggs are made up of jewels and intricate artwork in real life, creating Fabergé replicas with your 3Doodler pens and plastic is a natural extension of the medium.
Wondering how we created our Fabergé eggs?
We started with a real egg, poked a hole at the bottom to drain the yolk and egg whites. Make sure you do this over a sink or a trash can; it can get pretty messy.
Then we took our 3Doodler 3D printing pen and began Doodling an outline design on the egg’s surface.
Lastly, we created our final look by adding on a few additional accents and unique decorations up and down the egg until we felt it lived up to the name, Fabergé.
