Easter egg decoration: techniques with acrylic paint
Here are some interesting techniques you can use to decorate your Easter eggs . The following ideas are super easy to imitate as they only require acrylic paint and everyday items that you probably have at home. A sheet of aluminum paper, a piece of bubble wrap, corrugated cardboard, embroidery threads, etc. These are just simple objects that will help you when decorating Easter eggs with acrylic colors.
1. Easter eggs decoration using aluminum foil
This method of decoration is very easy. To achieve it you will need only a piece of alu paper, different acrylic colors and, of course, boiled eggs. First of all it is necessary to crease the sheet while being careful not to tear it. Then, partially cover it with any color of acrylic paint and wrap the egg in it. Let the paint work for a few minutes and remove the egg from the leaf. Let dry. If you wish, you can repeat the process with other colors to get a multicolored Easter egg.
2. Easter egg decoration with bubble wrap and acrylic paints
This technique is similar to the first. The difference is that instead of using aluminum foil, we use bubble wrap and always acrylic paints. Cut out a piece of long, narrow bubble wrap and sprinkle each bubble with a color of your choice. Now, carefully wrap the egg on the band so that the dots are printed on the shell. Let dry completely and repeat with a different color.
3. Create animals and people with fingerprints
Here, children will be super excited to participate! Make fingerprints on the shell using the paints. For the rest, it depends entirely on your imagination. How about a nice face or a cute little pig? You can, of course, change the size, manipulate a little shape or use all the fingers. Draw the rest with a permanent marker. Create rabbits, flowers and chicks, all in harmony with the party!
4. Decorate the eggs with corrugated cardboard
Repeat the technique with the bubble wrap, but this time, use corrugated cardboard.
5. Decoration in acrylic paints and threads
Use woolen threads, strings and thin cords to leave cute patterns on the shell. Dip the threads in different colors and wrap them around the egg. Remove the wires and let the paint dry well, before repeating with other colors.
You can, of course, combine the different techniques to get better results. For example, print green grass on the underside of the shell using the technique with corrugated cardboard. Then add a sun using your fingerprint and yellow acrylic paint. Give free rein to your imagination and have fun while decorating the Easter eggs. Surprise your loved ones by offering them eggs that you have beautifully decorated yourself. They will be absolutely delighted!
