"Look for Easter eggs hidden in the garden!

Materials: 

  • Eggs which have been emptied, washed and dried
  • DécoSpray matt in the colour 807 Light pink 
  • Déco markers in colours: 623 Green / 614 Purple / 601 White
  • Gédéo mirror-effect leaves in green and silver 
  • Abottle of gilding paste mixtion 
  • Fine brushes 

  • Paint two thin coats of pink on each egg, letting the paint dry between each coat.

  • Using a flat brush, apply the gilding mixtion to half of one egg.
  •  Leave it to dry for 15 minutes. 

  • Whilst you are waiting, cut small shapes out of the mirror leaves in both colours. 

  • When the mixtion has dried, apply a piece of the mirror leaf and transfer the colour by gently tapping with your fingertips. 
  • Repeat the process using another piece of the mirror leaf until you have covered the whole area where you applied the mixtion.

  • Use the markers to draw a floral scene: draw the stems on the edge of the gilded part. Wait for it to dry. 
  • Finish the flowers by adding small blobs on top of each stem and then use a slightly wet brush to smudge them and create a blurry effect. Wait for it to dry. 
  • Use a different colour for the centre of the flower, placing small dots over the cloud of petals. Let it dry.
