Pearlized Easter Eggs

Easter gatherings are the perfect time to display these elegant eggs.

What You Need:

Display these eggs on a tray or in a simple basket.
  • Eggs, real or plaster
  • Tiny nail, bowl
  • Pearlized acrylic paints in yellow, pink, white, blue, green, and lavender
  • Disposable foam plate
  • Sponge and water
  • Glass bowl
  • White sand
  • Pearls and shells

Instructions:

1. Pierce tiny holes on opposite ends of an egg if using real eggs. Poke a hole in the egg yolk. Blow the inside of egg into a bowl. Discard or use the inside.

2. Choose color combinations for your eggs. These pearlized colors were used in combinations of three colors; yellow, white, and pink; yellow, white, and green; pink, white, and lavender; lavender, white, and blue; and blue, white, and green.

Step 3

3. Place the three colors of paint on a foam plate. Use small amounts, about the size of a quarter. Soak a sponge in water and squeeze out the excess. Begin sponging on one color on one end, rinse out sponge, and apply the other color.

Step 4

4. Add and sponge in white where you want colors to lighten. Sponge and blend colors together until the desired look is achieved.

5. Display the eggs in a glass bowl with white sand, shells, and pearls.

More Ideas:

  • Display the soft-toned eggs in a grouping placed in different styles of egg holders.
  • Use this same technique to give ordinary Christmas balls an artful touch.
