The technique shown in this master class is known to many as decoupage. But there is one difference – when decorating Easter eggs, we will not use PVA glue, but we will use egg white as a fixing agent.
For this decor option, we will prepare:
- a couple of boiled eggs (we will decorate them);
- 1 raw egg
- three-layer napkins with a pattern;
First, take a raw egg and separate the white from the yolk. For further work, we only need protein. Beat it gently with a fork.
Next, let’s choose a suitable paper napkin. For such a decor, we need three-layer napkins and, preferably, with a small pattern. We only need the top layer from the paper napkin, carefully separate it.
Now we will tear off small elements from this blank, which will later become the decor of our Easter eggs. We have selected butterflies and small flowers using 2 paper napkins. The entire procedure should be performed with your fingers, not with scissors, in this case the edges of the elements will look more natural when finished. If you want the transitions to be completely invisible, then it is recommended to use paper napkins with a pattern on a white background.
Next, we apply the selected element to the egg, moisten the brush in the squirrel and begin to gently smooth the drawing. It is better to do this in the direction from the center to the periphery.
In this way, we moisten the entire decorative element, it should be completely saturated with egg white.
We decorate the other side of this egg in the same way. Here we fixed a smaller butterfly and small flowers.
We decorate other eggs for Easter in the same way.
