Directions

How to make marbled Easter eggs step 1: Bullseye!

Begin by pouring a little paint in the bottom of a small cup.


Then add another color in a dime size quantity.


Continue building a bullseye pattern with the colors of desired paint.  Until you have about 1/2 ounce of total paint.

Looking at the underside of the eggs isn't as thrilling.

There are some drips and lumps.  If you want the eggs to be tossed around without worry, finish off the underside.


Use a hobby knife to gently lift off any lumps of paint.

Then use either Gold Glitterific paint to fill in the backside of the eggs with some metallic sparkle OR mix a small amount of biodegradable gold glitter with a little bit of Mod Podge to make your own eco-savvy glitter paint!

Apply the whichever glitter paint you are using to the back of the eggs.


 The thick and chunky glitter is the perfect finishing touch!

Then toss them in a basket or in a tall glass vase for the perfect Easter chic decor.



That's it!
