Impressive artworks are made from broken eggshells and painted animal skulls.
Housewife artist Verna Hitchcock makes art out of broken eggshells and animal skulls - pretty impressive.
Begins with shot of Verna putting something made of egg whites in the oven. She then washes some eggshells. Verna sits at a large desk where she works on a large picture made in a mosaic style using tiny pieces of eggshells. C/U of the picture. Verna has become a bird expert through searching the countryside for broken eggs.
C/U of an artist's palette with a small animal skull standing on it. Verna decorates animal skulls too.
C/U of eggshell picture. Then shots of Verna's art on the walls of an art gallery. A young girl admires the pictures. Various shots of different pictures. Verna's new idea is making pictures out of pieces of coloured light bulbs. We see a picture of a parrot made in very bright colours.
Ends with shots of some of Verna's painted skulls.
"Portraits on the wall, that's old fashioned - now you have to get a painted skull on the mantelpiece to get a head start on the Jones's."
Cuts exist - see other record.
