It's hard not to fall in love with your Easter eggs once you are finished decorating them. We all do it, leave the room for a while and come back to check on how pretty they are again and again (all day long!).

We did that with the Easter egg tutorial we did for naturally dying the eggs with beets and drawing roses on them. They turned out so gorgeous! If you want to check out those Easter eggs for ideas, you can read that post here

These glimmer brush pens will leave a beautiful subtle shimmer to your Easter eggs. Beware, after using this set you will want to add shimmering accents to everything! 



2. Use Alcohol Inks

Alcohol Inks by Ranger

These dye-based inks are permanent and are very fast drying. When you use alcohol inks, you can spread the ink around using isopropyl alcohol. Because of the fast drying nature of the alcohol in the alcohol inks, the designs will leave whimsical lines all over your eggs where the alcohol quickly evaporated.

As you move the ink around, the edges will leave continual drying lines, like wisps of air.

There are some things to remember when using alcohol inks though: like that they are full pigment dyes so a little goes a long way. Also, be sure to use them with gloves to avoid staining.

You will also need blending solution or regular isopropyl alcohol that you can pick up at your local drug store. Check out some tutorials on YouTube on how to use alcohol inks if you have never tried them before.


3. Use A Natural Egg Dying Kit
