Polka-Dot Easter Eggs

These dotty patterns — in bright, poppy colors — are as fun to make as they are to wear.

Introduction

For a grade-A color scheme, mix metallic, pastel, and neon on multitone duck, quail, and chicken eggs. Acrylic and chalk paints are ideal for eggshells, because they're opaque and dry quickly on the unique texture.

 

These blown eggs come from our friend Gail Lambka of NakedEggs. Read more about her egg-blowing business and shop her selection for Easter.
