The Painted Egg: Decorative and Imaginative Easter Eggs

With Easter having just passed, we thought we'd look to one of the holiday's most common motifs, the painted egg! There are many different ways to decorate and make something special from your standard, boring egg. You can use either natural dyes or liquid food colors to make them almost any color you want. Not to mention all of the various artistic materials and ways that you can employ to make your Easter eggs really shine. Below is a collection of some of the many decorative and imaginative ways that Easter eggs have been transformed into more than family fun and tradition, but into inspirational pieces of art in their own rights. So many fun and fabulous examples await. Enjoy.
