Oh look, a blogpost that I shot a whole year ago! *pats self on shoulder* LOOK, EVIDENCE OF PLANNING.
*incoherent babbling that was meant to sound like an intro*
Some materials that you will need are-
- Eggs (duh!)
- White Tempera paint
- Sharpies, black and other colors
- A container to hold raw eggs
The first step is to determine what sort of eggs you plan on making. This usually involves Pinterest or the internet. For instance, I used these websites for inspiration (because I’m so not artsy, amiright?)
The raw eggs need to be blown out. (If you don’t know how to do that, google it. It’s essentially poking holes in both ends of the eggs and blowing through one hole to get all the slimy stuff out)
If you want to have colored eggs, prime the eggs with white [acrylic] paint. (However, learn from my mistakes, and don’t use tempera paint because sharpie doesn’t stick to tempera paint).
Because the sharpie thing just didn’t work, I ended up drawing on the (unprimed) eggs with sharpie and white paint, and they turned out fairly decently.
So there you have it, a blogpost that was in the works for a full year! (Also published only because I took aesthetic pictures that I wanted to publish XDD)
