KURETAKE: Easter Eggs

Happy Easter! I took some plastic eggs and do a quick but simple decor using KURETAKE ZIG® 2-Way Glue Chisel Tip and ZIG Art & Graphic Twin markers. This is what I came up with...


I brushed some Gesso onto the eggs. It took about two to three coats. Make sure you dry between coats for good coverage.


Next I used ZIG Art & Graphic Twin set of four Kind Hearted Tones purple and pink markers to color the eggs. I love how it covers the surface and such beautiful vibrant colors!


With the ZIG 2 Way Glue Chisel Tip, I drew lines for the pink and dots for the purple egg. Your tip will catch color so I swipe the tip on a scrap piece of paper and it transfers all that color off...it doesn't take much. Then I covered the area with fine glitter of a similar color for a monotone effect.


Let the glitter dry. In the meantime, I created a simple egg stand using a 2 x 6" strip of patterned paper cut/embossed with Spellbinders™ Edgeabilities® border die and adhered the ends to create a ring.


Here's a second look...


So if you are pinched for time, try this idea!
Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful Easter with family and friends :)
