Everybody starting to search how to turn this ordinary product into a beautiful design piece. We decided to help you with this uneasy task and created a step-by-step master class on how to transform a plain egg into a cosmic art object, greetings to all Star Wars lovers!
Galaxy theme is very hot right now. You can see it everywhere in pop culture, interior and nail design, fashion. So we’ve decided why not eggs as well? Trust us, your eggs will be the coolest on any Easter party!
We have been experimenting a lot and now we have a foolproof guide to share with you. The eggs are bright and festival, the colors are deep and more over, these eggs are still edible!
Let’s find out how to create a Galaxy using one egg and pinch of space magic.
You will need:
- Hard boiled eggs
- Food coloring kit (white, black, blue, purple, rose or/and orange colors)
- Brushes (a brush for each color)
- White Vinegar
- Disposable cups
- Plastic wrap
1. Get ready to create
Cover the surface with a piece of plastic wrap. Don’t forget to wear gloves. Pat dry the egg with a paper towel and get ready to create!
2. Prepare the colors
I small separate bowls, combine one drop of each color with one teaspoon of vinegar and mix well. You’ll need: blue, blue+black, purple, and rose. You can experiment with adding orange, yellow and white to this palette. Take a brush for each color.
3. Coloring process
The trick here is to be quick and not let one color dry before you apply others. One more tip is to start with light colors like rose or orange, then use blue and purple and finish an egg with a dark blue (black+blue). Dip the brush into the paint and apply to the egg creating a motive you want. Then take another color and another brush and cover some rendom parts of the egg. Repeat for all the colors until the egg in fully covered. As the coloring mixes are liquids, they will merge with each other beautiful gradient.
4. Take a quick break and partially dry the egg
Partially dry the egg by letting it stand for at least 7 minutes. Then carefully wrap it in a paper towel. You don’t need to make an it completely dry, just enought to remove the excess pain.
5. Dry the egg completely
Let the egg stand for at least 3 hours until it is fully dry.
6. Making ‘stars’
Combine a drop of white color with a drop of vinegar. Take a dry plain brush and make the ‘stars’ spraying the color over the egg. Let the ‘stars’ dry for 30 minutes.
7. Give it a shine
To make your Galaxy shine take a small drop of any cooking oil and carefully rub the egg. Don’t make it oily, just shiny.
Tip #1: It is better to let the egg dry verticaly. You can use a cap of any plastic bottle or make a stand with aluminum foil. Fold a piece of the foil several times, then shape it into a ring and secure the edges.
Tip #2: Use caps of plastic bottles instead of disposable cups to mix the colors and vinegar.
Tip #3: Using white or brown eggs will affect the end result. The white one will give you brighter colors while brown will make colors appear deeper and darker.
