Egg shells have the perfect texture similar to cold press watercolor paper, so ideal for trying out some free hand flowers. You can use any type of watercolor pigment – in tubes, pan style (children’s even!!). I wouldn’t recommend watercolor pencils unless you want a more structured look.
To begin gather your hand blown or boiled eggs, colors, a couple brushes (I used #’s 8, 4 & 2), glass of water, a piece of paper towel, and a paper plate or paint palette if using tube pigments.
Begin by holding the egg in one hand & dip your brush in water, then load some color onto the brush & start creating any flower shape. The easier the better. Once you have a few on there, lay back down to dry on another piece of paper towel. Start another egg and continue until flowers are done. Start again with a dry egg and create some leaf shapes with various green/yellow colors filling in spaces as desired. (I only painted one side). If you make a mistake you can wash the egg immediately, but there will be a light coloured stain left on the egg. Simply repaint those areas with the same color 🐰
Gather in a pretty bowl or basket!
