Tutorial to Decorate Eggs
As you know, there are different ways to celebrate and give gifts at Easter, in the past it was a tradition to give the egg or monkey by the godparents to their godchildren, but it is also a tradition to give the eggs decorated or painted in different colors.
Today we are going to tell you how you can empty the eggs without breaking the shell to To be able to do different types of crafts in this way , I advise you to do it with the little ones in the house, they will have a great time watching how we empty the egg and they can also participate. I teach you two techniques, one of them very simple so that the little ones can do it. It is a way to keep them entertained for an afternoon. I advise you to decorate them to your liking by following the steps that we give you.
We hope you like this post and entertain you like me and you know, you can share with us the photos of the decorated eggs or Easter eggs that you have created.
- A raw egg, the color of it is indifferent.
- A very sharp needle or cutter to make a hole in the egg.
- A large syringe with its needle.
- A deep plate and a bowl
- A glass of water and bleach.
We take the egg and very carefully we make a hole in the part of the base, we can support it in a padded place (for this we will need to have a kitchen towel) or we will hold it firmly without squeezing in the hand.
We make a hole in the shell; But we can make two holes, although I am only in favor of making one, but I understand that if we make this craft of eggs to decorate with children, it would be the easiest way to empty it; We can also use it if we want to put a ribbon to hang it.
With the syringe we are carefully putting air into the egg and in this way we will empty it into the bowl or plate. On the contrary, if children do it, it is best to blow through the other hole and in this way they will also empty it into the bowl or plate, this can be used for a French or potato omelette , bread or batter some fillets , paint a pie , etc.
This is very important, DO NOT LET CHILDREN DO IT , we will wash the inside of the egg with the water and bleach until the water is completely clear.
We will let them dry inside in the egg carton, on the outside we will dry them with a kitchen paper.
In order to paint the egg, what we have to do is puncture the empty egg with a toothpick and put it on a piece of cork or on the same cardboard that comes when we buy them to be able to paint it without problems.
We paint the base (we can also dye it in half by putting it in a plastic glass half full of paint of our favorite color, vinegar and warm water. If we want the color to be a blur we will add a little vegetable oil to the previous mixture ). We can also paint the base with a colored spray or acrylic paint with the help of a brush.
We can create different effects such as landscapes, flowers, mandalas , Celtic drawings, etc., we can also paste rhinestones, lace, sequins, satin ribbons or felt figures, etc.
After having them decorated, we will let them dry in the same cardboard that they gave us when we bought them.
