Painted Aluminum Foil Easter Egg
March 28th, 2012 by Craftylocks


This paint effect can be used to decorate all sorts of shapes but here it is used to make pretty Easter decorations. Use rigid card from an unwanted carton or shoe box if you do not have heavy craft card.

You will need, stiff card, aluminum foil, paint, cotton buds and scissors

Cut out an egg shape from the card.

Tear off a piece of foil bigger than the egg shape, Place the egg shape in the center and fold the foil up over the edges so the front is nice and smooth. You do not have to glue, the foil will stay in place on its own.

Paint a pattern on the egg using different colors. Instead of stripes, you could paint on spots of different colors or a combination of spots and stripes – or even a picture.

Using the cotton bud, make some designs in the wet paint to allow the foil to show through. It is better if you use a new cotton bud for each color paint you have used.

Well that was fun, time to make some more!
