Learn how to gold leaf Easter eggs! Using a simple technique and a few supplies, you can make stunning gold Eater eggs with beautiful designs!
“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 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.
How to Gold Leaf and Easter Egg
- Using gold leaf glue, a paintbrush 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 ; )
