5 Awesome Egg Decorating Ideas For Easter:
You Will Need:
1. Galaxy eggs:
Dab a combination of black, purple, turquoise and blue acrylic paint onto your egg, using a stiff paintbrush or sponge. Use a fine tipped brush to apply small white dots for the stars.
2. Bunny eggs:
Print bunnies and butterflies onto tissue paper. Carefully cut out, and apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to your egg, where you want to place your design. Gently apply using a brush, and finish with another layer of Mod Podge.
3. Gold leaf eggs:
Brush the bottom half of your egg with PVA glue. Wait a few minutes until tacky, then apply the gold leaf. Wait at least half an hour to dry, then remove excess gold leaf with a stiff brush.
4. Dot eggs:
Use a cotton bud to apply dots of colour, leaving each layer to dry before applying the next. Use 3 to 4 colours.
5. Marbled eggs:
Use spray paint to achieve this effect! Simply spray two colours of your choice onto the surface of a bowl of warm water. Put the nozzle very close to the surface of the water, and press half way down. You can marble the paint with a skewer, then slowly roll the egg over the paint.
