Marbled Plastic Eggs
Plastic eggs painted in a colour bath with Magic Marble marbling paint.
How to do it
Push a wooden flower stick into one end of the egg, enabling you to dip the egg in the paint. If the hole is too big for the flower stick, attach a bit of masking tape around the flower stick to secure it.
It there are no holes in the egg, make one with a warm metal stick.
Shake the marbling paint bottles well. Drip some paint into a bucket with water. We have used two colours as well as a clear paint.
Use a wooden flower stick to carefully pull across the surface of the water, mixing the colours and making patterns.
Gently dip the egg into the bath, so that it is covered by the paint.
Blow the colours over the egg and lift it (making sure not to lose the pattern).
Don't pour away the water before you have removed the paint with a piece of card. Clean the bucket and your fingers with ordinary cooking oil.
