Project Description

Anybody thinking about decorating Easter eggs??? You can definitely add a new dimension to your egg decorations with colored 3D crystal lacquers from Sakura Hobby Craft. I started my egg decorating project by coloring hard boiled eggs. I dissolved a tiny amount of paste dye (the kind used for cake icing) in one cup of hot water. To that I added one teaspoon of white vinegar to help set the colors. After removing the eggs from the dye bath, I let them dye completely before decorating with the metallic and pearlized 3D crystal lacquers. Here are the results.

Much easier to mail this beautiful card than a real decorated egg 🙂 I cut the egg pattern on my Cricut using Sure Cuts A Lot software and an SVG file that I found on SCAL Efiles blog. I love the name of the cut file–Fabergewannabegg. The Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer embellishments really make this card reminiscent of the  famous jewel-encrusted Faberge eggs.

    Wow Carole! That is such a cool idea. I think the eggs like great too. I really love the card though, the 3D Crystal Lacquer looks like bling on there.
