Hand Paintd Easter Eggs


It's the perfect time to get out your paints





And paint a few Easter Eggs 




I paint Duck eggs, they drop them willy nilly all around our pond.  We also supplement our chicken feed with Abalone shells.  Eggs are not as fragile.






Maybe throw in a few golden eggs, antiqued to make them more interesting






Place them into a bowl, hang them into a few forced blossoms or hide them under a cloche, on a bed of fresh moss.






 And if you have a little extra time why not gild a few eggs.  I will show you how
here and my goose that laid the golden egg here




Paint with a lot of different colors and don't forget the important white.





They don't have to be Faberge eggs, just begin and have a lot of fun.

  1. These are beautiful Gina, and how wonderful to have a ready supply of duck eggs, such a great size and much thicker shells.

  4. I can gild an egg, but paint like you do? Sadly, no... until I add that to my class to-do list!

    At this rate, I 'll need two weeks!

  11. THE MOST BEAUTIFUL HAND-PAINTED EGGS!!!

    Reminds me when I use to paint Easter eggs by myself, but never so 'artisticly' like yours! In the "old days" we used onion skins to provide a certain pattern.

    Lovely post Gina, thank you!

    1. Hello Lorrie, and a Happy Easter to you. Painting these eggs is not difficult. Just use a lot of different acrylic paints. My ducks supplied the canvas. and because they are duck eggs they are very sturdy and easy to paint.
