Painting Easter eggs with acrylograph pens
Hello my dear friends, Caroline here from the ambassador team @carolineace_bujo on Instagram and YouTube
With Easter being around the corner, I wanted to show you a fun activity using acrylograph pens to paint Easter themed eggs!
This is a relaxing and fun activity you can enjoy on your own or with all the family.
I personally love to bond with my daughter doing colorful activities that aren't super messy and acrylograph pens are easy to use for all ages which I love. So if you want to get creative and are looking for a new way to decorate your eggs this Easter season, or you want to try new artistic medium keep on reading.
For supplies you will need:
- Your favorite colors of acrylograph pens (I’m using an assortment of pastel brighter colors as well as some softer greens and pinks)
- eggs! (you can use faux eggs or real hard boiled eggs as I am using today)
- If you're like me and don’t have the steadiest of hands you can also use stencils or stamps check some cute stamps options here.
- *Optional a basket to store and display
Get your supplies and eggs ready: Hard boil your desired amount of eggs and wait for them to cool, you can also use faux eggs made from either plastic or wood if you prefer.
Find a surface with an opening to hold your egg while you paint on it. I'm using a small flower vase I had at home but I discovered that the circular base of any washi tape works perfectly too!
Once your egg is positioned you can start coloring either using a stencil or by free handing your designs.
Florals, botanicals, dots or lines are easy and look really nice! Here I am using the stencil from one of my monthly kits!
You can do multi-color or single color designs depending on your personal aesthetic.
I invite you to watch the youtube video to see what how I free handed and used the stencils of my egg designs here:
