Painting eggs with Easter is a necessity for me, you can see the evidence here, here, here and here. This year, I had my parents come over for lunch, so I painted 6 eggs. You will now be regaled with too many pictures of the eggs, good luck! In order of awesomeness
It’s a minion, clearly it’s awesome.
I added the googly eye, because I knew I wouldn’t be able to paint a nice eye. Also, googly eyes are the most fantastic things. They are currently also stuck to my laptop, phone and mp3-player.
This was a very dark egg with some planets and stars on it. My mother was kind enough to hide all the eggs for my father and me to find. This one was the last one we found. The reason was that it was put into a glass in a black closet, completely camouflaged. Super awesome.
Owl in tree egg
It’s an owl in a tree, I know, it’s not the most obvious one, but then my painting skills are lacking at the best of times. I still quite like it.
This is the duckling egg, where I attempted to create a baby duck or baby chicken. My mom hid this one between my rubber duckies on the window sill, and my father eventually found it after I missed spotting it about four times. (This may explain why I can never find anything..)
It’s a little piggy, I managed to put his tail on upside down.
This was where inspiration ran out. So I painted a blue sky with green grass and flowers.
The crew made a good egg salad.
For this occasion I also made some egg-cups by cutting up an egg carton, spray painting it with the only spray paint I owned (black) and adding three layers of varnish. Some have one long pointy bit, others have two rabbit ears. I quite like these also. After the three coasts of varnish, they are now quite sturdy, and according to the packet should be able to handle some water, but I haven’t tested that.
