Crafting Easter Magic: Painting the Perfect Easter Egg with Sample Pot - Colourtrend Paints

March 28, 2024 4 min read

With Easter just around the corner, it's time to add a splash of colour and creativity to your festivities! One delightful way to do this is by painting Easter eggs with your little ones. But why settle for ordinary dye when you can elevate your egg-decorating game with vibrant hues and re-purpose sample paint pots? In this guide, we'll walk you through how to transform plain eggs into works of art, making cherished memories along the way.

Why Paint Eggs with Colourtrend Sample Paint Pots?

Using sample paint pots for your Easter egg decorating endeavours offers several advantages. Firstly, the colours are rich and pigmented and come in a wide array of shades, allowing for endless creativity that won’t take hours of recoats and risks of little ones losing interest.  Secondly, their small size is perfect for crafting, making them ideal for intricate designs and detailing whilst also minimising spill possibilities! Lastly, our sample pots are made with our Interior Matt finish, your painted designs will have the same amazing durability and lasting quality as your walls, although we must remember eggshells may be a little more fragile! 

Getting Started:

Before hopping into your egg-painting adventure, gather the following supplies:

- Hard-boiled eggs (ensure they are cooled and dry)

- Sample paint pots in assorted colours

- Paintbrushes in various sizes, you can always use paintbrushes from your last painting project, or you can find our paintbrushes at this link, Colourtrend Master Experience Professional Brush - 1.5" - Colourtrend Paints

- Newspaper or a drop cloth to protect your workspace

- Optional: glitter, stickers, or other embellishments for extra flair

Best Colours for Easter Egg Painting:

- Iced Float: The perfect soft pink, symbolising spring blooms and new beginnings, pink adds a delicate touch to your Easter egg designs. You can find Iced Float Sample Pot at the following link, Iced Float - Sample Pot - Colourtrend Paints.

- Larkspur: Reminiscent of clear skies and sunny days, blue is a classic choice for Easter eggs, especially when paired with white for a charming robin's egg effect. You can find Larkspur Sample Pot at the following link, Larkspur - Sample Pot - Colourtrend Paints.

- Bunratty: Refreshing and vibrant, spring green captures the essence of budding leaves and fresh grass, infusing your eggs with a burst of springtime cheer. You can find Bunratty Sample Pot at the following link, Bunratty - Sample Pot - Colourtrend Paints.

- Lemon Curd: Radiant and cheerful, yellow embodies the warmth and joy of Easter, making it a staple colour for egg decorating festivities. You can find Lemon Curd Sample Pot at the following link, Bunratty - Sample Pot - Colourtrend Paints. 

 

Step-by-Step Guide:

  1. Prepare your workspace by laying down newspaper or a drop cloth to catch any potential drips or spills.

 

  1. Select your desired colours from the sample paint pots. For Easter-themed eggs, pastel shades such as soft Iced Float, Larkspur, Bunratty and Lemon Curd work wonderfully.

 

  1. Dip your paintbrush into the paint pot, ensuring it is adequately coated with colour but not dripping excessively, this will minimise mess and help you create beautiful patterns and designs seamlessly.

 

  1. Carefully apply the paint to the surface of the egg, using gentle strokes to create your desired design. Encourage your little ones to unleash their imagination, whether it's painting stripes, polka dots, flowers, or even tiny bunnies!

 

  1. Allow the first layer of paint to dry completely before adding additional layers or details. Patience is key to preventing smudges and achieving crisp, vibrant colours.

 

  1. Once the eggs are fully decorated and dry, you can further embellish them with stickers or printed shapes and dried flowers for simple yet effective designs, you could add glitter to the mix if you are feeling especially brave, but don’t say we didn’t warn you know about the glitter cleanup!

 

  1. Display your masterpiece eggs in a decorative basket or egg holder, ready to dazzle friends and family.

 

Conclusion:

Painting Easter eggs with Colourtrend sample potsis not only a fun activity to enjoy with your children but also a delightful way to add a personalised touch to your holiday celebrations. With vibrant colours, creative designs, and a sprinkle of imagination, you can transform plain eggs into cherished works of art that capture the magic of the season.
