Other Supplies

White plastic eggs, Brush basin or container for water, Foam plates or waxed palette, Paper towels, Small craft sticks, and Foam block

Instructions

  1. Prepare white plastic eggs by inserting the wood craft stick at the base of each egg. This will provide a handle to hold onto while decorating the egg.
  2. Basecoat each egg with a complementary color, either FolkArt Color Shift or FolkArt Brushed Metals acrylic paint using a large flat brush and allow to dry.
  3. After painting, insert the wood stick handle into a Styrofoam block to hold the basecoated egg upright, allowing it to dry.
  4. Next, using the same large brush or a large spouncer, apply the color-coordinating FolkArt Glitterific paint. If brushing, "lay" the paint down using a 45° angle while applying Glitterific. If spouncing, dab or spounce Glitterific first with a light coat. Then, add additional coats of Glitterific until the desired glitter effect is achieved.
    • Note: A light application of Glitterific will allow the basecoat color to show through. Additional applications of Glitterific will provide a dense glittery effect over the entire egg.
  5. Allow to dry upright on the Styrofoam block.
  6. Remove the wood craft stick, then decorate!
