Easter Eggs into Robins Eggs
So my friend Jenny calls me and says of course, "What are you doing?" and I say, "Painting Easter eggs." and she says..."OOOKAAAAY." And moved on...I think my friends may be afraid to tell me I'm crazy.
So, I really was though see.
I used my acrylic paints called Basics...I love these paints! I started with white and added green, a tad and then a tad of Sienna and mixed. I'd paint a few eggs and then mix either green or sienna and change the color up a bit. I also did cream eggs by using just the white and sienna. I laid them open. This was a very boring process and I had to hand paint them instead of using spray paint because I wanted a variety of colors.
Then, I speckled them. I actually found on my second run, that I could leave the eggs laid open instead of closing them and still speckle them.
Next time I think I'm going to sand the edges so their isn't a visible rim and try painting them while they are closed instead of open. I'm not sure which is best. Here's how I speckled them.
I violently flecked the bristles of this old toothbrush. I even found that using two hands and pulling the brush back a bit and letting the bristles go was also affective for larger splatters.
