You will need:

  • Polystyrene egg
  • Model magic (coloured)
  • Beads/gems/jewels/buttons
  • String (optional)


  1. Mix a few colours of coloured model magic together to get a nice marbled effect. This material is very soft so ideal for working with younger children.
  2. Cover a polystyrene egg full in the model magic. If you wish to hang your finished egg, add a loop of string at this stage.
  3. Press buttons, gems or other sparkles onto the surface of your egg. 
  4. Leave the model magic to dry overnight – it will set to a ‘spongey’, not rock hard finish.
