Hand Painted Easter Eggs

Gold Leaf Hand Painted Eggs

These hand decorated eggs started out as cheap plastic dollar store Easter eggs. First I covered them with two layers of gesso. Then I painted them with two different turquoise and patina acrylic paints. I sealed the paint with a layer of medium and after drying, a layer of crackle paste was added to created texture. The patina colours showed through the cracks, but I added a bit more of the blue paint glaze to highlight the crackle finish even more. I finished the eggs by adding veins of gold leaf that was variegated with blue in the gold. These will make a nice Easter décor accent. Happy Easter.
