DIY botanical Easter eggs
- acrylic paint
- paper mache eggs
- decorative moss
- an egg carton
- The Paper Garden: An Artist Begins Her Life’s Work at 72 by Molly Peacock for some lovely inspiration
- I chose to use paper mache eggs because I didn’t want to worry about cracking. Paint them black with acrylic paint.
- Draw flower shapes with a pencil and paint them in in solid blocks. I painted all the shapes first on all the eggs before moving onto detail. I used shapes inspired by Mary Delany’s work and made a Pinterest board that you can use as a reference.
