Step 1 – Remove the ribbon from the top of your plastic egg and pop a screw into the end to make it easier for you to paint. Pop-out some Black and White and mix some of the black and white together to form a grey. Paint all the eggs and let dry.

Step 2 – Grab a small amount of air-dry clay and roll into a ball. Lightly flatten with your fingertips. Choose one of the stamps from the Knob Toppers and press firmly into the air dry clay. Leave some of the eggs plain without any air dry clay.

HANDY NINT – You want to make sure that your sir dry clay is quite thick to get a nice crisp imprint from the stamp.

Step 3 – Lay the clay flat in your hand and apply some wood glue. Be sure not to use too much otherwise it will seep out from behind the mould on your egg.

Almost there!

Step 4 –  While your moulds are still drying, sprinkle some cornflour all over your egg, leaving the mould. Apply a second coat of paint including over your mould. The corn flour acts as a thickener for your paint and gives a nice faux concrete effect.

HANDY HINT: Be sure when you’re painting to stipple onto the egg to give it loads of texture.

Now to age!

Step 5 –  Apply a coat of clear wax over all the eggs. Then pop out some Grit and apply over the eggs. The wax helps the grit adhere to the eggs.

Step 6 – Then take some white paint and dry brush over the entire eggs. Cut some scrap ribbon, lace or jute and glue to the top of the eggs.

I used a vintage jelly mould and popped in some shredded paper and then the Faux Concrete eggs. You could also use a wooden bowl or make some loops to hang and hang on a tree. The possibilities are endless.

  1. These are just great Sam. Today I was looking on amazon for wooden Easter eggs and of course in Canada the price made me weak. This is a really great alternative for making something so different. I love what you created.
