Watercolor Easter eggs are a fun alternative to traditionally decorated eggs.
I have a confession to make… I can’t stand the egg dyeing kits that you buy at the store. The vinegar smell is not my favorite and all those stains from the dye. It’s enough to make me want to pull my hair out. I can never really relax during egg decorating time because I’m constantly worried about what is going to get stained. So this year, I decided to ditch the traditionally decorated eggs and go with one of my favorite current trends… watercolor. Here is how you can create watercolor Easter eggs.

HOW TO CREATE WATERCOLOR EASTER EGGS
First, make sure your eggs are hard boiled. You don’t want any messes if one accidentally cracks! Place your eggs in an upside down egg carton.
When using the Pentel Aquash Water brush, you squirt water into the watercolor palette and then pick up the color with the brush. Choose your color and start painting on the top of the egg. I chose a bright pink. Pull the color down the side of the egg with the brush or let it drip down.

Add as many different colors as you want. I added purple below the pink. Once the egg has dried, turn it over and paint the bottom.
In addition to the pink and purple eggs, I also created some blue and purple eggs and some green eggs.
I’d love to hear your favorite way to decorate eggs!
