Freelance Friday: Speckled & Gilded Easter Eggs

Think decorating Easter eggs is a little boring, because there is not much you can do with them? Well think again. Now I know many consider Easter eggs something only children will like to decorate, but what if I could show you a way to make your eggs a little more chic. Take a look at these Speckled & Gilded Easter Eggs, from Sand and Sisal. Kim created these eggs and then turned them into a centerpiece for her table. I love this project, because she was originally inspired by a tablecloth pattern. These Speckled & Gilded Easter Eggs were created using Martha Stewart craft paints. This is such an elegant way to design and display your Easter eggs. To learn how to make these, click here.

How to Paint the Stencil

TIP: Practice your technique or check your color by first making a sample print on paper or scrap fabric.

  1. Place stencil on your surface and secure using tape. If using spray adhesive, spray stencil first, then place on surface.
  2. Pour a small amount of paint onto your palette. Load paint sparingly on a stencil brush or sponge and dab off excess. Lightly dab on a thin layer of paint; apply a second coat if necessary. Paint all areas of one color on the stencil before moving on to the next.
  3. While paint is still wet, carefully peel stencil off.
  4. Continue painting areas of the stencil according to your design. Let the paint dry completely before placing another stencil or color over it.

Clean Up

  1. Wash all stencils, brushes, and tools immediately after use before the paint dries. Use Martha Stewart Crafts Brush & Stencil Cleaner to remove dried paint.
  2. Repair torn stencils with transparent tape. Place tape on both sides of the tear and cut away the excess with a craft knife.
