Can you believe how fast the new year is going? Spring is almost here so we thought it was a great time for a Spring Silhouette Challenge!
Each month I challenge a group of talented ladies to use their Silhouette Machine to create something amazing and this month is no different! We have all come up with some fun, beautiful Spring projects to share with you!
The first step to my Plastic Easter Egg Makeover was to prep the eggs for paint.
To prep plastic on any kind for paint to rough up the surface so the paint has something to stick to. To do this I used a sheet of sandpaper to scar the surface of the egg.
Next I mixed up a small batch of chalk paint using a couple squirts of teal acrylic paint, blue acrylic paint and about 1/8 tsp of plaster of paris.
When my paint had the right consistency it was time to add a thick coat to the outside of the plastic eggs. To make it easier to paint I broke the eggs in half that way they couldn’t roll around while painting.
When all the eggs were painted I grabbed a very small amount of the white acrylic paint and mixed it with water. Then using my paint brush I flinged the paint at the eggs to create a speckled pattern.
For the last bit of definition and character I dotted the eggs randomly with a gold paint pen. Then finally applied my Silhouette Decal using some transfer tape.
