Have you ever tried blowing eggs? I love the idea! You can save your eggs for a long time that way. It does take some work though. About half of mine cracked, but luckily I was able to cover that up with a little acrylic paint :)
Here's a quick tutorial on how I decorated my first ever blown eggs!
Blown eggs: washed and dried ( You can find a good tutorial on blowing eggs HERE )
Acrylic craft paints
paint brush and/or foam brush
paint pallet or paper plate
Step 1: On a paper plate or paint pallet, pour small amounts of acrylic craft paint and mix colors to get desired base color. I used a medium blue, white, and bright green for my base colors.
Step 2: Using a foam brush, paint the base color(s) over one half of the eggs. Let dry and then paint the other half and let dry completely. You can paint one smooth color or blend in other colors to get a more varied look.
Step 3: Lay eggs out on paper towels. Cover your work area well... this gets messy! Load up a paint brush with the paint color of your choice. Hold the paint brush in one hand next to the eggs and with a finger, flick the tip of the brush to splatter the paint onto the egg- Jackson Pollock style!
Step 4: Let each side of the eggs dry before turning them over to flick paint on the other sides. Then let dry completely. Your'e done!
