Faux Faberge Egg Craft

By:

0 Comments

Get the look of faberge eggs at a fraction of the cost. Gild wooden eggs, real blown eggs or plastic eggs for this look.

Faux Faberge Eggs

Materials:

  • Perfect Paper Adhesive - Matte
  • Duo Adhesive
  • Willeez Creatures
  • Gildenglitz - Gold, Silver, Copper and/or Variegated
  • Texture Sponge
  • Paintbrush

Extras:

  • Stickers
  • Sequins
  • Rhinestones
  • Scrapbook Embellishments
  • Ribbon
  • Gold Cording

Directions:

1. Use the paintbrush (or sponge) to apply PPA to the egg and allow it to dry. This seals the wood or real eggshell, making it receptive to the Duo Adhesive. Plastic eggs do not need to be sealed. Rinse the brush for reuse.
2. Use the paintbrush (or sponge) to apply Duo and allow it dry thoroughly. It must be dry and tacky to the touch to be receptive to the gild. Rinse the brush for reuse.
3. Apply the Gildenglitz in any color, carefully covering every area. If an area is left undone, simply apply more Duo and allow it to dry. Then apply the gilding.
4. Gently burnish the gilded egg with the Texture Sponge, taking care to save every part. These tiny pieces can be used on another egg or another project.
5. Carefully decorate the egg with the embellishments, using the PPA or even bits of Great Tape. Display the eggs on painted wooden, embellished stands, old votive holders or even an gold curtain ring.
