Milk Painted Easter Eggs

Easter has always been a pretty low key holiday for our family. Good Friday and Easter Services are the focal point. The eggs, Easter Bunny and chocolates make their way into the mix but aren't heavily emphasized. This Easter Sunday, we will be celebrating my daughters 7th birthday as well. I asked her, what is the most important thing we are celebrating on Sunday? She enthusiastically exclaimed, "NOT my birthday! We are celebrating when Jesus rose from the cross!" I told her that is a very special thing to share on her birthday!

In the spirit of spring, Easter and birthdays we pulled out the eggs this afternoon and hosted an impromptu egg dying event at the shop. 


Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint was our dying medium.


We made a watered down dye using Apron Strings, Eulalie's Sky, Dried Lavender, Mustard Seed Yellow, Kitchen Scale and Lucketts Green. 


We left the eggs in the dye for about three to five minutes.


Mixed them around while they were soaking.


Got bored of the waiting so pulled out the crayons to color the eggs.


The result was a soft color palette of perfect spring eggs.


Definitely not the vibrant color that food coloring offers but some great textured effects from the drying. 



Best of all, we had fun and have a basket of eggs ready for the Easter Bunny! 

Happy Easter!
