It's that time to start gathering things and ideas for egg decorating. It's not my favorite craft, so I don't produce anything fantastic. Generating ideas for you is something I can do though.
Blowing Out Eggs
|Using a long straight pin, poke a single hole at the point of the egg. Then at the bottom.|
|I used a manicure orange stick to poke through the bottom hole to make it bigger to release the egg white and yolk easier. It also breaks the yolk.|
|I resized a print out to decoupage one of the eggs. |
After all this one seemed appropriate for a hen egg.
I love rooster decor in the kitchen.
|Egg form is not easy to work with. Small stickers or stencils would be amazingly nicer. |
Something you may want to consider.
|I added white glue swirls for relief design on one half of the egg at a time to allow drying for each side.|
|Ready for painting.|
|I used a waterbase stain and let it dry. Then clear coated the whole egg.|
Black and Gold
|I spray painted this egg in gloss black. When dried, I used gold glitter stickers and|
hot glued an embellishment all around the egg. It was very simple.
|Using colored pencils and a fine point black sharpie for this, I drew the flower and greenery. |
Then painted the blue around the egg. Then clear coated the whole thing.
Wild West Wood Look
|Using a waterbase stain again, and a black sharpie to write the year on this one.|
|Using the white glue again, I just swirled a bunch of "S" shapes all over the egg. Then painted it turquoise. Over that, a watered down black paint to distress the blue.|
|Using a pink highlighter pen, I colored the entire egg. Then hot glued pearl and |
silver beads on the egg for this design.
|I spray painted this egg black gloss, dried then hand painted on a white lily with oil paints.|
White Glue Relief
|White glue relief design, painted whole egg in black acrylic, then lightly sanded to reveal the swirls.|
|I painted this egg in 1997|
|Happy Easter 2014!|
