Today, I’m channeling my inner impressionist with a painterly Easter DIY that is easy as pie. This is so much more fun than dyeing eggs…
Here’s what you’ll need: hard boiled eggs, acrylic craft paint, a paint palette, and a paint brush
To make your own brushstroke eggs: Choose a color scheme, pour out a small amount of each color, and mix paints to get the perfect colors (if you don’t want an ‘out of the tube’ color). Using a quick brushstroke, add short lines of paint (just like polka dots but in brushstroke form) over the entire egg, leaving space between the strokes to add more later. Set aside while it dries and start another egg the same way. Once the first round of paint is completely dry, add a second color of brushstrokes, wait for it to dry, and then add your third and final color.
Double the size of your brushstroke lines by painting two or three short strokes right next to each other, to make more of an abstract polka dot egg (like the eggs on the top left below).
