Hello lovelies!


Excuse my absence, I haven't been very productive and energetic in the past few weeks. Hopefully that will change soon.


As every year, I spend a little bit of time painting Easter eggs. This year I have been inspired by the very talented Elspeth McLean, an Australian artist who takes dotillism to another level.


So today I want to show you three dotted Easter eggs I did and there's a tutorial (well more of a video recording the process) for each of them!

All eggs were decorated using acrylic paints, dotting tools and a small brush. I considered using nail polish but it would make the job much harder since it dries so fast. A drop of acrylic paint stayed wet for the whole time I was decorating.

This first egg is inspired by the colourful painted stones Elspeth does and it's also my favourite of all three!

And this last one was an experiment with acrylic paints that I've never used but I probably won't use again because they are not very opaque and dry glossy and uneven. I still like the egg though ;)


Here's how I did it:




I hope you've enjoyed this post and maybe it will inspire you to decorate your own Easter eggs! Sorry it's not nails but there are more things I like in this world apart from nails :) If you would like to see my previous Easter adventures, you can see it here and here.


Have a nice Easter break and let me know what you think of my Easter eggs! Lucie x
