Erasers & BandagesEraser Decorating
1. Pour some paint onto a disposable plate. Dip just the end of the eraser into the paint and dot the egg. Wash or wipe off the eraser to change colors. Dot one color at a time. Cover the egg with dots.
Tip: You can also use a cotton swab to make small dots on your egg.Bandage Decorating
Steps 1 and 2
This way of decorating your egg works best on a natural-colored egg instead of painting the egg first.
1. Cut larger bandages in half the long way or use small bandages to decorate the egg. Overlap the bandage strips or make whatever design you choose.
2. Paint the entire egg, covering all of the bandages. Let the egg dry. Carefully peel off the adhesive bandages. There will be eggshell-colored stripes where the bandages were.
Tip: You could make designs on the eggshell-colored stripes by using some of the other painting ideas.
