Rubber Cement Easter Eggs

We love resist methods when painting such as the classic oil pastel and watercolor method. One of our favorites is Watercolor Resist with Rubber Cement so we used this process to make some really cool eggs for Easter.

All you need are a few simple materials. See the steps and video below for the easy directions.

You will need:

Step 1:

Gather your boiled eggs. We used a mixture of brown eggs from our chickens and then some white store bought ones.


Step 2:

Drizzle some rubber cement onto one side of an egg over a plate or tray. Keep the drizzles skinny and move it around the egg…try not to let it pool in one area. Let that side dry (it will still be a little tacky) and then flip it over to do the other side.


Step 3:

Place your egg in your dye until the desired color is achieved.

Step 4:

Remove the egg from the dye and allow it to dry. Rub off the rubber cement gently with your fingers (too much rubbing may remove some of the color).
