The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.
- Blown Out Eggs
- Colored Tissue Paper
- Liquid Starch (You can also use any decoupage medium or diluted white glue)
- Wax Paper
- Clear Acrylic Spray
Start out by covering your work surface with wax paper. Pour some liquid starch into a bowl. Tear your tissue paper into small pieces, the smaller the better. Ripped tissue paper looks best, but you can cut them if you like.
Make sure your blown out eggs are clean and dry. Dip one piece of ripped tissue paper at a time into the liquid starch and stick it to the egg. Cover the entire egg in this fashion, making sure the piece of tissue paper overlap so no white spots are showing. You might want to decoupage one half of the egg, let it dry, and then decoupage the other half.
Once the tissue paper is completely dry, seal it using clear acrylic spray or a couple of thin coats of decoupage medium.
