eggses!

One of my favorite elements of Easter is the Egg.

It’s symbolic of renewal, of spring…blahblahblah mythic symbol and they taste good especially if they’re duck eggs, or my cousin’s backyard chickens’…

Also took forever to find the classic egg dye.

WHY IS IT IN LITTLE PAINT POTS THAT SPILL INSTEAD OF DROPPER BOTTLES!!!!!!!

Anyway, here’s the result… except for the two eggs that cracked and I ate them…

 

Done with wet eggs, in a dish rack, drop paint onto eggs with small pointy nylon or taklon art brush. Let them dry on the rack, though you might want to dab them with a paper towel when they are mostly dry (there will be blots). Wash the rack and sink with your usual scrubbies, or a magic eraser.

Think about your color wheel…

the (Winsor Newton) Color Wheel

color wheel

opposite colors make browns and greys and bleack. So don’t drop purple on top of yellow, or red on top of green or blue on top of orange.

My set had red, yellow and blue… and purple. red and yellow = orange, blue and yellow = green.

Putting all of these on top of eggs that are brown (and one green one) creates some interesting effects (it tends to tone down the colors).
