I put together eggsamples of painting on eggs for a DIY article on Hobby Ideas. Because Easter is approaching and its time to sit down and make some eggsellent colorful stuff!!


I picked up half a dozen of eggs from the shop, washed them clean, boiled them (by adding a pinch of salt while doing so), then allowed them to cool down so that its easy for me to hold them while painting. I ended up working on 6 varieties of paintings on the eggs:


The random technique of putting down on a surface whatever comes to your mind. This could be spontaneous repetitive patterns and is termed Doodling. I have used Fabric pens to doodle on the surface of the egg to make a DOODLE EGG.

2. Wood Finish:

Wood comes in a variety of colours and textures. The beautiful grains of veneers can be replicated with Fevicryl Acrylic Colours by using the method of “Wood Finish”. Using a couple of shades of brown, I could make this WOODEN EGG.

3. Marbling:

Gradation in art is a visual technique of gradually transitioning from one shade to another. The technique of marbling by randomly blending and allowing colors to play on a surface, creates a marbled effect. It’s fun to roll an egg over colours and make a MARBLED EGG.

4. Galaxy Effect:

The concept of Galaxy Effect takes a step forward from the technique of gradation which usually results in a monochromatic colour scheme. Shading with multiple colours and blending them into each other creates amazing effects on a surface. There’s a GALAXY EGG too!!

5. Half-and-half Concept:

A simple technique of dipping and Dyeing a surface/ portion of an article results in a half and half effect. Its easy to dip an egg into some colour to achieve a HALF-AND-HALF EGG.

You can also use the above techniques on canvas, pebbles, etc.

Also note that these painted eggs are perishable

I also went on to make a cards for Easter. This is a rather quick DIY for kids.
