CREATIVE SUNDAY WITH EGG SHELLS
LIST OF ITEMS USED
- Empty bottle of diffuser
- Oil paint from my previous creativity
- Shiny sprinkles
- Small quantity of Fuel / paint thinner or mineral spirit for washing and rinsing the brush.
I carefully break the eggs to separate the liquid from the shell. Which I fry for my kids to enjoy for breakfast. I got 4eggs on the first day and another 4 the next day. I washed the shells with liquid soap and rinse them with water. Air dry for a few minutes and start painting the egg shells carefully with three different oil paint I have. Black, gold and silver.
After painting takes the shells out to dry naturally. Keep them out of the reach of children because they like to know what has happened to the egg. My son smashed one egg all because of curiosity. Although the paint on the eggshells makes it hard to be easily broken.
I added a few shiny sprinkles to give a different colour effect.
During the painting, I put the eggshells on the diffuser stick so I don't smash the shells with my hands.
Painting three different colours with one paintbrush would require rinsing the brush.
What can I use to easily rinse out my painting brush? I use and a chemical called paint thinner/ mineral spirit.
Paint Thinner is a powerful solvent that breaks down oil-based paints, primers, and stains, making it easier to strip paint off of a surface.
After painting, our eggshells is ready to be displayed as a decoration in the house, office or any place best fit for decoration
