Boil the eggs and dye them in the different colors, dissolved in jars according to packet directions.
Leave the eggs to cool before you start painting them with the acrylic paints. Using non-water based paints make the decorations longer lasting.
Dip a thin brush in the paints and draw on the eggs; let your imagination run free.
Drawing thin lines along the entire oval of the eggs makes them absolutely beautiful. You can paint dots between the lines, zig zag lines, parallel lines etc.
If you're the more dexterous type paint flowers, suns or whatever else comes to mind. Place the Hand-Drawn Easter Eggs in egg holders so the paint doesn't smear.
