Make Easter fun by hand painting eggs. It is a brilliant way to give vent to your creativity. Here are a few egg painting styles you can try.
How to Paint Easter Eggs: 3 Cool Ideas
You would require hardboiled eggs for this project. The other supplies vary with the methods.
Watercolor Letter Painted Eggs
- Firmly attach letter stickers to the eggs so that they spell out an Easter message.
- Swirl your favorite watercolors onto the eggs with a paintbrush generously allowing them to bleed and blend. Use a paper towel to control dripping of any excess paint.
- Allow the eggs to dry completely.
- Peel off the stickers.
Brushstroke Egg Painting
- Choose a color scheme or design.
- Pour small amounts of acrylic craft paint in the desired shades on a palette.
- Mix paints if you wish to make a unique color.
- Dot the eggs with short quick brush strokes in a single color leaving a space between the consecutive dots.
- Allow the coat to dry.
- Add a second layer of brush stroke dots in a different color to fill up the spaces mentioned above.
- Once dry, start dotting with a third color. Allow to dry.
Hand Painted Eggs with Overlapping Designs
- Use a craft punch that gives your desired shape on a vinyl sheet to make a stencil. I prefer the circular shapes.
- Apply the DIY stencil to the egg. You may need to rub the inside edge for ensuring a good seal.
- Dab undiluted food coloring inside the stencil with a cotton swab.
- Let it dry completely before removing the stencil.
- Repeat with a different food color while pressing the stencil down to overlap the previous shapes.
I wanted a dark background for some of my designer eggs. So I covered the circles up with round stickers, dipped the eggs in inky-black dye before removing the stickers.
Well, beautiful patterns on eggs are not a big deal, after all. Just a few easy steps and you are all set for Easter celebrations.
