For a few years I had the idea in my head to make some nice Easter eggs, by coloring them black and white. I want to use plastic eggs for it, so I can use them for a couple of years as decoration for Easter. On Pinterest I saw sometimes beautiful eggs, but some are way too difficult to make for me. And most of the time I didn’t have time to make the DIY because I always had something to do for my study. But since I graduated I have a lot more time on my hands for my Blog. So with Easter coming soon in about three weeks from now, I finally started with coloring the eggs like I had in mind.

I can tell you now that it’s not easy to color these easter eggs. I have some paint experience, but had a lot of troubles keeping the lines the way I wanted it and a mistake was made very easy.

What do you need
1. White plastic eggs. I bought them at Action in a box of 8 pieces. They are packed in a nice carton box like it’s the real deal.
2. A little paint standard/tool for easter eggs. I bought mine at Action, but I also saw them at Hema.
3. Black permanent markers in different sizes. I had mine already for some time, but I think you can buy them everywhere.

All the time I started with an egg in the standard and then I started painting some small cirkels for example. After that I filled the white spaces outside the rounds with black.

I hold the striped eggs into my hand and painted it per stripe and turning the egg around.

Sometimes the color needed some drying time, so I started with a new egg then. So many design in my head already ;-).

The crosses were a little bit difficult, specially in the end when I had to make the last crosses between the first and the last one I did before. I started with the egg in the tool, but finally I had to take it out, because of coloring the top and bottom of the egg.

I wasn’t easy to make it the way I wanted, but now in the end I’m satisfied with the results. I have a lot more ideas to draw on the eggs and maybe I want to put some varnish on the eggs to keep them protected. Only I don’t know which varnish yet. I don’t want the eggs to become yellowish of the varnish. So if someone has a tip for that? If I tried some varnish I wil show you the results here on the blog.
