  1. Punch as many dragonflies as desired from heavyweight paper; set aside. Note: If using standard-weight paper, glue two or three punched shapes together to create a thicker dragonfly.
  2. Insert skewer into bottom of foam egg. Holding skewer and following manufacturer's instructions, apply thin coat of spackling to cover egg. Dip brush into water occasionally to help achieve smoother surface. Place skewer in heavy glass or jar to dry. Lightly sand surface of egg; wipe away dust. Apply second coat of spackling, if desired. Let dry.
  3. Using photo as guide, glue and pin dragonflies to egg. Let dry completely; remove pins.
  4. Following manufacturer's instructions, apply one or two generous coats of Copper Topper to egg and dragonflies. While final copper coat is still barely damp, apply Patina Blue. Let dry; color will develop as project dries completely.

These eggs really look elegant and classy! As an alternative method, you could draw your own dragonfly onto paper, paint and apply, or cut similar shapes of butterflies, clover, blossoms from old greeting cards, magazines or wallpaper scraps and apply for a charming effect! Love the look of these gorgeous eggs! Thanks for the great instructions!
