Love the dappled effect on the eggs! How? The colours on the black and red egg are truly inspired- WOW!!!

These are lovely! How did you get that great texturing on the surface of the eggs?

These are made from styrofoam eggs, which are already textured. Start by painting the eggs with a thin layer of Elmer's glue. This keeps the spray paint (I used Krylon) from eating away at them too much, but you'll still get a little additional pitting from that. Once the base color was dry I turned the eggs on their sides and used flat black (also spray) to spritz a little on each end. I found it was easier to get a good effect by holding the can about a foot away from the egg for the black layer.
