My daughter’s last term project was exploring artists. With little time to spare (due the following day!!) and a Matisse exhibition in town and a little pinterest for inspiration (saw a balloon covered in leaves) and inspiration hit hard – we would make a matisse cut out egg!
– we left to dry overnight and popped the balloon the next day!
I was highly dubious that it would work, but it did!! Very happy results…
I am really happy to say that the Matisse egg has been a bit of a hit on Pinterest over the past few months, and I have been so touched to see it so appreciated.
Update: i am thinking of making matisse egg kits – downloadables, templates or printed – would love to hear if anyone would be interested!
