Marbelous Easter Egg

By:

Create beautiful marbled Easter egg ornaments in just 3 easy steps.
 


 

Materials:

  • Delta Ceramcoat Acrylic Paints: 3 or 4 colors, suggestions include:

    • White, Blue Danube, GP Purple, Bahama Purple

    • Sunbright Yellow, Lisa Pink, White, Blue Danube

    • White, Sunbright Yellow, Lisa Pink

    • White, Bahama Purple, Blue Danube

    • Calypso Orange, Sunbright Yellow, Lisa Pink

    • White, Lima Green, Lime Green

    • Lisa Pink, Blue Danube, White

    • Blue Danube, Bahama Purple, Lime Green

  • Clear glass or plastic eggs

  • Paper cups or empty egg cartons

 

Instructions:

  1. Remove hanger and cap from the egg. Rinse inside of egg with alcohol. Let dry completely. No moisture should be inside ball. Start with one color of Ceramcoat paint. Squeeze just a small amount of the first color into the egg so it runs down the side. Rotate the egg and squeeze a little more paint down the side in another area until you've added about three or four lines of paint with only a dime-size amount of paint pooling at the bottom of the egg.
     
  2. Add the next color, squeezing out a small amount of paint in between the places where you added the first color. Continue to add one or two more colors in the same fashion.
     
  3. Rest the egg on its side for approximately five minutes. (Place it to rest in the egg box it came in, an egg carton or a paper cup for easy handling.) Rotate and tilt the egg a quarter turn every five to ten minutes until the paint covers the entire inside of the egg. Pour out excess paint. Then continue to rotate it every few hours over the next day. This helps the paint to coat the egg evenly. The color will continue to move and change with each turn. When the desired effect has been achieved, drain out any remaining excess paint. It may take up to five days to dry completely (a hair dryer will speed drying time). Replace hanger and cap when dry. If desired, decorate with ribbon.

 

Notes:

  • For horizontal marbling: coat egg with your choice of colors and let the egg dry on its side, rotating one side to another, avoiding an upright position.
     
  • For vertical marbling: coat egg with your choice of colors as in steps 1 and 2 and prop egg upside down in a paper cup to drain. Let dry.
     
  • For variegated, irregular marbling: drop in one color of paint, swirl, then add another color. Continue adding or repeating colors and swirling until the entire egg is coated on the inside. Follow step 3.
  • Use Ceramcoat Acrylic Paint only-other brands of paint may not be compatible! Also, if paint pulls away from glass, add more paint after original paint dries.
