EASTER EGG CRAFT

YOU WILL NEED

  • White card stock
  • White crayon
  • Watercolor paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Water
  • Scissors

HOW TO MAKE WATERCOLOR EASTER EGGS

STEP 1. Cut out egg shapes from the card stock.

STEP 2. Draw designs of your own choice on the egg using the white crayon.  Dots or circles, wavy lines are a few suggestions.

Tip: Do not color the whole surface in crayon as you will not have any card stock to paint with the watercolors.  Less is more!

STEP 3. Paint the eggs with the watercolor paint.

WHAT IS WAX RESIST?

A wax resist technique is commonly used in ceramics or pottery. The purpose of a wax resist is to stop the glaze from adhering to the whole of the clay pot.

Here we use a similar wax resist technique by adding crayon wax to our Easter eggs. The wax stops the watercolor paint from adhering to the parts of the card stock where it has been applied.
