In my today´s tutorial, I´ll show you how to make mosaic easter eggs. It´s nothing difficult, these are eggs decorated with cracked egg shells and making them is really simple. And in this tutorial, I´ll also show you an unusual embellishment! So keep reading!
- Blown-out white eggs, brown egg shells
- Acrylic colors
- White glue
- Flat brush
- Wooden skewer
- Bonus: base coat, nail polish with cracking effect
Prepare your eggs – blow the content of the white egg out, clean in and let dry. You can also put eggshells aside while cooking or baking, wash them carefully and let them dry. Using a brush you can paint the shells in different colors and let them dry.
For better working with the egg shells, I drew the wooden skewer through the holes in the egg and fixed the bottom of the egg with play-doh. Using a flat brush paint your egg. I mixed pink and silver colors to reach a metallic effect. You can also have your egg white. It´s up to you and your fantasy.
Make the mosaic pieces by gently cracking the shells with fingers or spoon. Using a brush apply a thin layer of glue on a small area of the egg and using tweezers attach the colored piece of shell, then slightly press it with clean and dry fingers. Before adding another piece, don´t forget to leave a small space between the two pieces. Try to mix smaller and larger pieces. Keep adding different colors on the surface of the egg until the egg is covered.
When I mixed metallic color on the egg, and idea came to my and I decided to try one unusual decoration. I painted an egg shell with nail base coat. Then I applied the nail polish with crackling effect and let dry.
