Hand Painted Easter Eggs


Let's get out the paints, Easter is just around the corner



The portrait of Odette is a tile I painted for a client. It came out of the kiln this morning. The eggs are hand painted with acrylic paints. Start out with polka dots. Use lots of different colors.

Here is how you attach a string or thread to an egg:

Fold thread over and make a loop. Tie the open pieces to THE MIDDLE of a 1 and 1/2 inch PIECE OF STRAW . Drop straw (with string attached) into egg. Jiggle a little. Pull up string.

Voila! Ready for hanging.

  1. Oh, my, Gina, these are stunning! The colors you use are so rich and uplifting and such a lovely alternate to the usual Easter pastels. It's been ages since I decorated an egg but this is inspiring. How I'd love to have the time to do it! (p.s. saw your forum post re: assistance on blog design stuff. Email me questions and I'll see if I can help.) xo – g

  2. Georgianna, you are so kind. Thank you for offering to help. I have been learning a lot by doing. I have also ordered a book "Blogging for Dummies". They are usually good reference books. But it is so reasuring to know that you are there to help and for that I thank you.

  3. I haven't painted easter eggs since I was a child but think I might give it a go again this year - yours are so pretty and I remember it as being such fun. :) Hope you're having a lovely weekend!

  4. Dear Kenda, I was a bit worried about you the day before yesterday. I'm glad to read your post of today. We are here to support you. Just send us a line.

    I hope that you will paint a few eggs. Use the acrylic paints from the little bottles. The colors are more vibrant and there is so little to clean up.

    Have fun and let us see your version.
