Every year me and my mother paint our Easter eggs in a different way! I remember this artistic custom taking place in our home since I was a little kid. Dozen of boiled eggs, paint and brushes reigning our place and my mother thrilled to invent new patterns and designs! This year Gelly and Harrison came by and we had a blast  together! Try painting your own eggs too, and I swear if you try it once then becomes a must!

Hand Painted Easter Eggs:

Boil your eggs in a large pot. Let them cool completely and start decorating them. Use acrylic or aquarelle colours of your taste and make from abstract forms to flowers animals and crazy designs. Do not be afraid and express yourself! If your egg brakes, try with another one. Always have in mind that this is all about fun. You don’t have to be a great illustrator or a renowned painter to draw. Make your egg, your canvas and enjoy it! Good luck and Happy Easter!
