Gold Leaf Easter Eggs!

Comments

eastereggIMG_9574_wideshot1IMG_9549_bunnyIMG_9558_TheWorldEggGoldenEasterEggs1GoldenEasterEggs2“I want my geese to lay gold eggs for easter!” Just like Veruca Salt, I wanted a few gold eggs for Easter, so I made it happen with some beautiful gold leaf. For my gold leaf Easter eggs, I created the world on an egg, a golden bunny and a simple heart. The heart was made using a heart sticker that I removed once my egg was covered in gold leaf. We created the bunny with an easy pencil sketch and the world I did by eye… which you can do too : ) Gold leaf is extremely delicate, so it tears easily and can stick to your fingers, but who said Easter egg decorating was clean? I had so much fun creating these eggs – I love doing creative projects that take concentration and focus. They let your thoughts rest and your right brain go to work! It’s kind of like yoga for the brain, haha! I’m in love with how these turned out. They’ll be a beautiful addition to my Easter decor this year.

Using gold leaf glue, a paint brush and a pencil, draw your design.
Paint it in with glue and then place a sheet of gold leaf over the top. Lightly tap it (it might lift, but that’s okay because you can fill the holes in later) and then give it a second before lifting the edges up. Your design will pretty much be laid in, but you’ll need to do a little touching up and cleaning around the edges.
*Tip: You can also do this on wooden eggs for a decoration that will last a little longer ; )

    Wow, these these look amazing! Egg decorating *is* strangely fun, and I tried the flower and onion shell technique last year. I doubt I could bear to crack and eat these golden ones, though.

      Haha!! It is fun and while I was decorating them I was thinking… wait why do we do this??? Then I realized how much it makes me focus and how my mind rests as I’m only thinking about that egg, ha! I agree… strangely fun 🙂

    These are too precious! I also think it is hilarious that you reference Veruca Salt. I literally sent an email to the folks at Karma quoting a line from Willie Wonka moment’s ago.

    Great movie. Great reference. Great idea. Win-win-WIN!

    These are insanely beautiful. I wish I had the patience to do something like this. I’ll be lucky if I dye regular old eggs…

    I’m going to try this on hand-blown eggs so they’ll last forever! Thanks for the tutorial!
