Answering a few of your frequently asked questions about decorating eggs below!

Is decoupage and Mod Podge the same?

Decoupage is the art of making a project with paper and glue. Mod Podge is one of the glues that you can use for your decoupage art!

Should eggs be warm or cold for dying?

The answer to this is that it doesn’t matter. The other answer to this question is that eggs should always be refrigerated when you aren’t working with them.

Should hard-boiled eggs be room temperature to color?

They should be easy to handle, and there shouldn’t be any risk of burning yourself. Letting them cool before coloring will prevent this from happening, but they can be warm or cold without problems.

Types of Eggs to Use

Any size of an egg can be decoupaged. If you want to go into more extensive patterning, it is easy to work with larger eggs. 

White or brown eggs can be used, but keep in mind the color of the egg can impact the color the egg becomes. In general, large white eggs are the easiest to work with and color. 

You can also so faux eggs for decoupaging. These will last all year!
