Easter Egg How-to: Oxidized and Gold Speckled Eggs | Project by Focal Points, Inc. for the Modern Masters Blog

Modern Masters Metal Effects Kits help create a gorgeous patina and gold-speckled Easter Egg | Project by Mary Childs of Focal Points, Inc.

Prep your working area with newspaper or a dropcloth to ensure the products are contained to your work area. Open the Metal Effects Kits and lay out the supplies as everything needed to patinate the eggs is included. Apply two coats of Metal Effects Primer to your eggs with the 1″ brush. Let the Primer dry 30 minutes between coats and allow the second coat to dry overnight.

TIP: Use an old egg container to lay eggs on while they dry and then flip. If you don’t have an egg container, use an appropriately sized box, cut an X shape with the scissors and push down on the X to make a hole your eggs can sit in.

Using a 1″ brush, apply the Bronze Reactive Metallic Paint onto all the eggs and let dry for 30 minutes. Once dry, we’re ready to continue to paint and patinate!

Working one egg at a time, cover the entire painted egg with a 50/50 combination of the Bronze Reactive Metallic Paint and Copper Reactive Metallic Paint, giving each color their own unique areas. While WET, immediately spray the entire egg with equal amounts of Green Patina Aging Solution and Blue Patina Aging Solution.

Rotate the eggs several times during the drying process to create interesting oxidation effects. Repeat with each egg and let dry overnight. It will take several hours before the patina colors start to reveal themselves so be patient!

Modern Masters Metal Effects and Gold Rush Metallic Paint create SUPER gorgeous patina and gold speckled eggs for Easter | DIY How-to by Mary Childs of Focal Points, Inc.

Place the fully dry patinated egg on a holder. Dip a 1″ brush into the Gold Rush Metallic Paint and dab the excess on a paper towel. Create the splatter pattern by gently tapping the 1″ brush against the handle of the 2″ brush until your desired pattern is achieved. I recommend testing the splatter patern on a piece of paper first. Rotate the egg for complete coverage. Once completely dry, you can arrange the eggs in a beautiful bowl or style them on faux moss or grass as well as using your existing Easter decor.
