Foam clay is a product I discovered when a kit was given to my son for a birthday, and it is so fun!

It is air dry, and that always makes things easy. But the best part is what it's like after it dries. It dries into something soft and slightly squishy, just like other craft foam products. It's so cool.

What will they come up with next?

Step 1 - Cover eggs with foam clay

Cover the egg completely with a layer of foam clay. The thickness of the clay should be around a quarter of an inch.

Step 2 - Even out the clay

You might want to roll your egg around again with the palm of your hand to even things out.

Depending on the thickness of your egg, doing it could embed the pearls deeper into the egg, which could be a look you like even more.
