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 a 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.
