Because this month is a Easter season so I decided to do a steampunk style egg as my project.
You can see how I built up the egg from SCRATCH in the follow video, it is not difficult at all and I encourage you to try it out!

Basic procedures:
1) Use chicken wire to make the egg shape

2) Mix Paper paste and plaster paste to build up texture
3) Add clockwatch parts for decoration
4) Cover with black gesso
5) Spray heavily with all the Lindy's sprays
6) Emphasize on certain parts with spray Grab a guy gold
7) Use Embossing Powder on random parts

8) Once again paint surface with Grab a guy gold

I did showcase how the egg looks at the end of the video, please don't forget to look at that and see how the metal effect is gorgeous and incredibly eye catching !!! also I welcome you to enlarge the photos I upload here to see how the metallic colors of Lindy's are the most mysterious beauties !!!
