What you need
To make these embossed eggs you'll need:
- Black acrylic paint
- Golden fabric paint
- Paint brush
- White glue tube
Make a small hole to drain the egg and clean the inside of it. After the egg dries take a small piece of paper, glue the area around the tiny hole on the egg and stick the small paper on it for covering the hole.
Use black acrylic paint for the base coat of the egg. One layer of base coat should work. You’ll have to color the base coat carefully as you won’t be able to color the whole egg at once. Color half of the egg at first and after it dries, color the other half of the egg. Allow the color to dry.
Prepare white glue cone or use white glue tube. Before designing the egg it’s better to draw some designs on a piece of paper. If you’re not used to making designs using cone, then you should practice a little. Make sure that you’re ready to start designing! Carefully and slowly press the bottom of the cone and start designing the egg as you want. Too much details might smudge the whole design, so be careful. You won’t be able to design the whole egg at once. Design half of it at first, allow the glue to dry and then design the rest.
Once you’re done designing, allow the white glue to dry. This is how the egg will look like after the glue dries.
After the white glue dries you can apply the final gold coat using finger tip. Drop a small amount of gold fabric paint on your finger tip and apply it over the designed egg. After the first coat dries apply another coat of gold fabric paint evenly on the designed egg. Be careful while applying the gold paint coat, too much color might smudge the design.
