i made a ton of single egg patterns i just wanted to try these out. you start by making a single egg then when your done shaping it you dip it in cold water to make it keep its shape. then you start adding more small drops of glue around them and dip those in the water when they have shape. you keep that up until you feel you have a full egg cluster. they are very simple but it takes a little practice. and yes it colored glue from a mini glue gun.
