Other Supplies

FolkArt ® Extreme Glitter™ - Peridot, 2 oz. #2789, Paper Mache eggs (or Styrofoam or plastic-fill if no paper mache are available), Foam paintbrush, Stencil tape, Basket of choice with flat surface

Instructions

Eggs:

  1. Basecoat eggs in desired colors of acrylic paint. Let dry.
  2. Paint each egg with corresponding colors of Extreme Glitter. Let dry. Apply second coat.
  3. Note: It is fun to paint eggs ½ and ½ , then glue jewels around the join line.
  4. Let dry 24 hours before putting into Easter Grass.

Basket:

  1. Tape around bands of basket that you are planning to paint. This will protect the areas you do not want painted and make it easier/quicker to paint bands.
  2. Paint an even smooth coat of Rose Shimmer Metallic on areas chosen. Let dry.
  3. Apply two generous coats of Hologram Extreme Glitter, allowing to dry between coats.
  4. Remove tape. Place eggs in basket and enjoy.
