Quick Marbled Easter Eggs
See how easy it is to create marbled Easter eggs using the marble kit from Marabu!
I haven't dyed Easter eggs in years. I guess it's because I always felt like it was something you did as a kid and not as an adult. I remember when I was younger getting the kits that had the little fizz tablets along with the wire egg holder to color my eggs. The wax crayon was my favorite! It could be used as a resist to create cool patterns and designs. Well, egg decorating has come a long way since I was kid. Decorated eggs aren't just for popping into Easter baskets - they are being used for so much more than that! Eggs have become works of art that are now trendy holiday decor used to dress up tables and mantles.
One on-trend way to decorate eggs is marbling. I am obsessed with this look! The Marabu Easy Marble Starter Kit takes the guess work out of the technique and allows you to effortlessly create gorgeous marbled Easter eggs in minutes! How cool is that?
- SmoothFoam Eggs (Check out other egg options below this post!)
- Container (for your water)
- Wooden Skewers
- Rubber Gloves
- Paint Palette or Cup (for mixing colors)
To make your marbled Easter eggs, fill your container with water. You'll want to make sure you have enough water to dunk your eggs. Start by adding a skewer to the bottom of your styrofoam egg. You'll want to put your gloves on before working with your paint. Grab your blue and white paint and shake them. Add a few drops of white to your water and then add a couple of drops of blue paint. Take your skewer and run it through the paint creating a marbled look. Dip your egg into the water. Before you pull the egg out, remove the excess paint by either blowing on it, or by using a paper towel. Once all of the excess paint has been removed, pull your egg out of the water. Let your egg dry for 15-20 minutes.
TIP: If you want to mix colors, you'll need to do this prior to adding it to your water bath; the colors will not mix while in the water.
