Easter Eggs in Hong Kong

DSC00828
However Easter is not much that big of a event in Asia as it is in Europe or America. In the Netherlands you pretty much could already buy Easter stuff right after New year has ended. However here in Hong Kong only since last week there was some displays showed in various malls in Hong Kong. But not much product sold with a Easter theme. In Asia people don't celebrate it like other places on the world however still it is bit introduced but most people don't do much with this holiday. Here at Tai Po super mall there are special artistic eggs displayed. They are all carved and painted or pasted with crystals.

These are ostrich eggs and that is also why they have such a thick wall and able to make such interesting carvings. However I am not sure if they actually carved it by hands or actually using a computer with a CNC drill to make these. HoweverI have seen shows about this and people mostly does this by hand. However the most specials were the whole set of American presidents carved on chicken eggs.

Someone have been slacking or have made a major error with the name tags cause both Bush and Obama have both names Bill Clinton, however their nam in Chinese are written correct but not their name in English.

However it is not only the recent but the whole list from the very first till the most recent but also they have the Chinese presidents also.

However if you look at the detail I doubt these are hand done the are way too perfect I think this is for sure made with a computer then by hand. For sure the most interesting open public expo that I have seen that was held at Tai Po. Some where else they had someone singing however not a famous person but she sang pretty good plus she sang allot of famous songs.

However if you look at the expo you can see they use pretty big stages and seem to be intersting and use allot of money to make the decor and decorations. However I think it would be intersting to design these kind of things and maybe try to have my own exhibition somewhere with my own work and designs.

However it is not originally my design however this is an interesting design. Here below is the template of it that you can make one yourself. This packaging is way better then the Pochup which could never stay flat unless you put it between a telephone book.

Printing on sponge

Well am learning this myself though but its quite usefull as it's not a technique that is openly published how to do actually. But today I done several tries and even learned few extra things along the way. But mainly learned this so I dont have to pay stupid expensive prices most of the companies ask when for doing this. However I do need to see how i could cure the inkt cause it need to be heaten up so it won't wash off when there is accidentally get water poured over it.
