Now that I only have a teen-ager at home, we don’t do the dyed eggs anymore. (he’s no fun)
But… I still needed some soft pastel hued Speckled Eggs for Spring.
So… I grabbed a few of my Smoothfoam Eggs.
I gave the eggs a light sanding to remove the ridge and painted them with a soft chalky finish.
Like the name suggests, these eggs have a smooth finish making them perfect for painting.
The best way to paint an egg…
Use an small glass or candle votive to hold the egg. Paint one half of the egg at a time.
I especially like the look of speckled eggs, so I grabbed an old toothbrush for speckling.
- Speckled the eggs by lightly rubbing the old toothbrush into brown paint and gently flicking the paint onto the eggs.
- Make sure to wear an apron to protect your clothing. Flicking can be quite messy.
