Marbled Easter Egg!
Easter is such a fun time of the year!
I always get excited to decorate for Easter because of what it symbolizes and also it means that SPRING is on the way!!
I love gold and I love glitter.
So I thought it would be fun to try my hand at Marbled Gold Easter Eggs!
I started off with some gold oil-based paint from the craft store.
I used resin eggs I found at Hobby Lobby.
Here’s how I made the Gold and Glitter Marbled Eggs:
Gold oil-based paint
plastic cup or bowl
First of all, this type of paint is very strong. It eats through styrofoam and thin plastic. So if you are dipping your eggs in a cheap plastic cup, you need to add a couple of cups on the outside just in case the paint eats through the plastic.
Here’s a tip — fill the cup half way with room-temperature water.
When you pour the paint into the cup, if the temperature is right, the paint will float on the surface of the water.
Then be sure to wear gloves to protect your hands.
Dip the egg into the water and roll it around until it grabs the paint.
Then lay it onto wax paper.
The last thing I did was I sprinkled some gold glitter onto the eggs while they were stil wet so the glitter would stick.
I love the contrast of the white with the gold.
It’s so pretty!!
Now that I’ve shared my fun Easter creation, some of my favorite creative friends and I are pleased to invite YOU to wow us with yours!
