If making your own eggs, melt the chocolate in a double boiler and pour into your mold. Chill until solid. Repeat to make two more eggs.
Roll the fondant on a flat, clean surface dusted with confectioners' sugar. Cut out three circles to cover and brush with a small amount of water on one side. Press the circle onto the bottom of the egg and create texture using a pair or scissors or a knife.
Using the flat side of the leaf cutter, cut out enough "leaves" to cover three eggs. (I had to reroll the fondant several times cutting as we went so they didn't dry out.) Brush one side of a leaf with water and, starting at the bottom, press the leaf onto the egg with the pointy side down and slightly overlapping the circle. Continue adding scales (leaves) to the egg until the entire egg is covered in scales. Lightly coat each egg with gold Color Mist spray using short bursts. Then repeat procedure with each color. When the eggs are dry, give each egg another light coat of gold. Allow to dry completely.
Store in a cool, dry place until ready to use. Eggs can be made up to 36 hours in advance.
