Remembering that we had been welcoming Easter at a hectic pace in recent years, the new situation also brought us some beautiful moments – the opportunity to devote to ourselves and to our loved ones to finally dedicate to the Easter home decor and try out some of the colouring techniques we had always wanted. Year after year, we were taking different colors, dipping the cooked egg, creating a long rainbow of decorated Easter eggs. What if you try something bold this year?
Until Easter, try to organize kids’ evenings that will turn you into a creative fun of learning some of the new Easter crafts, and we’ll share with you some techniques.
EGG WHITENING TECHNIQUE
We cooked plain eggs in a mixture of alcohol vinegar and water in a 1: 1 ratio. When cooking, it is important to pay attention to 2 things: time and foam. The cooking time should not be longer than 10 minutes, as this method will condition the eggshell. The foam that appears during cooking must be removed with a spoon so that it does not boil. When the cooking is done, dip the eggs in cold water and rinse them lightly with a sponge. Be careful and gentle so that eggs with a flat shell do not burst.
NATURAL COLORING EGG TECHNIQUE
1. ORANGE COLOR – Cook the carrots together with the eggs, and you can also add chilly powder or ground red pepper to the cooking water.
3. PINK COLOR – Use beetroot or cranberry juice to cook eggs.
4. BLUE COLOR – Purple cabbage leaves or black grape juice will turn blue when cooked with eggs.
1. DECORATION OF EASTER EGGS WITH GOLD COLOR
Provide yourself a place to decorate, use empty egg boxes to color and dry the eggs. For such detailed motifs, the best drawing technique is in hand. We found the thinnest brush we had and decided to draw motifs with it.
2. FACES WHO GET ALIVE ON EASTER EGGS
If you found pastels among the creative material, you can also use this method:
Put the boiled eggs on a pad or use an egg carton and reach for wax pastels. Start drawing on them while the eggs are still hot as pastels will melt and allow you to make easier moves. This technique finds inspiration in the ancient custom of coloring eggs with wax.
