Faberge Egg by osiskars Faberge Egg by osiskars
The Idea of Faberge egg was that it held a precious thing inside it , that was hidden or secured in the egg. It had to be very surprising, and extremely valuable, respectively: beautiful....

In my interpretation that is the heart... Because heart is not only the most precious but also the most beautiful ‘thing’. It’s the symbol of love , passion , compassion, conscience , caring ,generosity, courage but as well remorse, guilt, jealousy ....and of course it’s the thing inside your chest that beats restlessly throughout your life , never stopping , never taking break, although sometimes we push it very hard and even torture it... It is the tool of life! And at the end it’s the thing that proves death!

I say: treasure and protect it! As it is the biggest treasure of all!
Don't lock it away , but if you do , then always keep the key by your side , so whenever you need you can unlock the cage and take a look into your heart , and act according to it :)

Details:
Time: in whole from the very start of phase 0 to the finished piece , it was almost 3 months.designing , experimenting, researching and sculpting, casting, painting- all took a long time , not even mentioning the endless mistakes, that made me redo a lot of things...
Materials: fast cast resin, sculpty clay , green stuff, guitar strings, styrene .
Paints: Citadel miniature paints

P.S. other questions about the piece itself, the craft, ask in questions, if there are any. For details look here > osiskars.deviantart.com/galler…

Want! I was searching faberge eggs and saw this and it was my favorite! I would love to buy one. With the time and effort put into making it I am sure it would be worth a little $$ but I would be ecstatic to own one! You do gorgeous work!

Aw thanks! Thanks , well believe it or not, I have been asked many a time to sell it. Unfortunately I have only the one and over the time it's condition isn't the best. 
however the fact that people keep asking me this, is encouraging me to make more of these to sell. When I get the time and money I would love to invest and make couple of these :)

Well if you did not get top grade in your University Project I would be so surprised. An egg that looks like it came from a fantasy realm but real here in ours. You have a unique vision....beautifully done.

What I would love to know is what materials you used, the schematic for it so i can make one, and the tools that you used because I would love to make something like this... Any help would be appreciated :)

Materials: fast cast resin, sculpty clay , citadel green stuff, styrene .DAS clay.

Well schematics .... Hard to imagine what type of schematic I can produce :D ..

One thing is that the egg shell is created using vacuum former. And that means that probably you wont be able to make it at home, unless u have vacuum former in your garage :D .

At first I thought it was a photomanip and was quite impressed. Then I saw the categories and my 'quite impressed' rocketed universe high to a barometer of 'impressed' than words cannot encapsulate.

But seriously. This is so cool, it's like it exists only in drawing/ imagination. You are really talented!

Thank you everyone for the Favorites and views , and awesome inspiring and supporting comments! It makes my heart warm to know I have inspired so many people!

For the endless "I want it" comments :D : Honestly I didn't expect this kind of reaction from people so I did not make it for a purpose of selling. However I am now thinking I might make couple more eggs, but to do that I have to keep the original :) . And I cant do it atm because I am extremely busy at Uni :( , but maybe in summer time :)
