  2. Basecoat your eggs with your Apple Barrel Paint and let them dry.
  3. Paint simple designs on basecoated eggs and let them dry.
  4. Use your pencil to draw three horizontal zig-zag patterns across one egg.  Cut out the first egg where your pencil lines are then trace the cut out zig-zag shapes on your remaining two eggs.
