painting and dEGGorating

Do you understand the point of painted eggs? Nor do I, but some people seem to take the art very seriously (especially the Ukrainians, golly). And since I spent Easter with some friends who are both arty and eggy, it was time to give it a try.

First step: blowing eggs. I’d never done this before, and until we found a bigger pin with which to make the holes it was quite taxing. And gross-looking.

Second step: busting out the gouache, acrylic ink, felt pens and gold paint, and filling the eggspanse.
