Pop Art Easter Eggs

I always have a hard time with Easter. I’ve never been into cute chicks and
bunnies, and my version of the pastel palette consists of hot pink, banana
yellow and neon green. But that doesn’t mean my Easter eggs have to suffer.
This year, I’m being bold and teaching my kids a lesson in pop art. I
clicked over to Google images and found some Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein
and even Keith Haring images. The trick to the eggs is to color them as
usual with traditional egg dye kits (I used Twinkling H20 watercolor
paints) and then apply images printed on water slide decal paper. This is
clear paper that has a protective backing that is most used in model car
kits. After printing the image, soak it in water and the image separates
from the backing. The result is a transparent background. If you don’t have
time to buy the decal paper, you can decoupage the image on the eggs.

I’ll have the printable directions up in a few days!
