Make It : Mosaic Eggs Tutorial

Posted by

Today's Easter egg guest post comes from the one and only Stephanie Hung!

With March going out like a lamb, I have been feeling quite spring-y these days.  If you go down to the woods next Sunday, you're sure of a big surprise; at least in my neck of the woods - Mosaic eggs!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love making these eggs because the technique is simple and doesn't require any special supplies.

Materials:   Eggs, food colouring (neon!), vinegar, white glue, paintbrush and tweezers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 1: Mix food colouring, vinegar, and water.  Dye the eggs to your desired colours and allow to dry.

Step 2: Gently break the eggs, empty their contents, and allow the insides to dry.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 3: Break down a coloured shell.  Brush glue on the back of one piece and adhere to another egg.  Continue adding pieces, leaving a bit of white space in between.

Don't worry too much about a perfect fit - once you have a few  pieces glued on, your mosaic will come together.
