So… I stole this idea from one of my retailers and good friend, Morey at PAINTED studio. It was just too cute (and she ordered WAYYYY to many eggs), so I knew I needed to share it with you guys. I finally found some time in my very overwhelming weeks (family stuff) to get back into my studio and be creative, and I am so excited to share this project with each and every one of you!
To start, I put my eggs on skewers. Some were easy to get in and others I had to really poke it in there LOL. These eggs are papier-mâché, but you can use glass, plastic, and basically any other eggs you find. If you are wanting to do some papier-mâché ones, you can find them on Morey’s website, HERE.
Next, I base coated my eggs. I painted them Persian Blue by General Finishes and black. I know black is a little basic, but I have a ton of foils that look great on a black background.
Now let’s get foilin’. Foil Adhesive is a product I created and it is definitely one of my favorite products. It starts milky white and then will dry clear and shiny. Make sure you give your foil adhesive 15 – 30 minutes minimum to dry. It drys to a firm tack and will never dry past that. You can let it dry for a day or a year and it will still be sticky 🙂
Set your egg in the foil, and remove from the skewer. Then wrap the foil around the egg and grab your toothbrush or scrub brush to help you get the best transfer possible. Make sure to leave some areas without foil if you want to add some glitter to your eggs.
Once you have foiled all your eggs, you can now get out your glitter. Grab a plate, bowl, or tray to put your glitter in and roll your egg around in the glitter until you get as much glitter as you want on your egg. YES, there will be glitter everywhere 🙂 LOL!
WOW! These turned out fabulous! So stunning and different than anything I have ever seen 🙂 What are you waiting for?? Grab your supplies and get Foilin’! Your Easter decorations will be the talk of the town (or at least your family HAHA) 🙂
