The pine cone really lends itself to the dragonscale effect.
Great work!

My grandson would say it’s a dinosaur egg but either way it a great job. Nice work.

Very nice,,,, I did one once with a pine cone to make a mini birdhouse…. I had no dye so it was pretty plain, but it worked… Not nearly as pretty as your egg.
