How to Paint Floral Easter Eggs

How to paint easter eggs

I have a favourite Easter tradition: Making Easter eggs! As much as I enjoy dyeing eggs into bright and colourful decorations, I wanted to try something different this year.

Since I’ve been painting a lot of florals with watercolours lately, I thought it would be cool to try painting them on eggs for Easter. It turned out to be a lot of fun and I’m pretty happy with how they turned out!

All you need are some hard-boiled eggs. To avoid smudging, it’s best to let one section dry before moving on to the other side; a paint palette or shot glasses are perfect egg holders for this. I found that the darker colours worked really well against the white egg shells.

I also painted a bunny to guard the eggs 😉

They were almost too pretty to eat (or use for egg battles)! But hey, there’s always next year!

I hope you liked this post and that I have inspired you to paint on something unconventional. The world is but a canvas to our imagination 🙂
