Technique 1: Watercolor Streaks

For this first technique start by adding some ink from the Dual Brush Pen to your Blending Palette, then use a wet paintbrush to transfer the ink from the palette to your egg. Use lots of water and let the ink drip down the egg. This is where the egg carton comes in handy, to help you decorate one side at a time without getting your fingers too messy. Start with the lightest colors first, letting them dry a little before adding the next color.

Technique 2: Drawing Directly on the Eggs

This one is super easy! You’re going to use your Dual Brush Pens to draw directly onto the eggs. Pick an easy-to-replicate shape like a flower or polka dots and repeat all over each egg. The trick to giving them a watercolor look is to start with the lightest colors first and make sure you overlap the shapes slightly so you get some color blending and transparency like you would with watercolor paint.

Technique 3: Wetting the Eggs

The last technique involves drawing directly onto the eggs like you did in technique 2, but this time we’re going to use a wet paintbrush to blend the ink directly on the egg for a more watery look. Super easy!
