These embellished eggs were handmade by someone who spent a lot of time on them, and used some very sparkly rhinestones. I came across a big boxful at an estate sale and thought I'd repaint them all for my own tree.
Originally, they were golden eggs.
So, I painted on some white chalk paint, and then wiped some off for a dimensional effect. I'd painted right over the rhinestones too, so I could get all the paint down in the crevices. With a wet cloth, I cleaned off the parts I wanted to remain golden or shiny.
After that, I added some fine, crystal glitter to brushed on school glue.
My intensions were to paint all of them, but as I started to spend time working on the project, I became fond of them as they were. So, some got a whitewash, some stayed golden. I've added a few to my own tree, and put the rest in the Boutique. If you'd like to paint your own, or enjoy them as is, you can find them there.
