I entered the Martha Stewart
#marthasgoodeggs contest on a whim….
….and I was a finalist in the best embellished egg category for my crayon dripped eggs.
We have done these several ways. You hold a full sized crayon over a lit taper, or over a long lit lighter (the kind you might light your grill, or a candle with)…..either way, ADULT supervision is necessary :) Then you just let the wax drip onto the egg shell. Rotate the egg to color more of the shell. I like to let one end set and dry, then flip and do the other.
The color palettes are endless, and the end result is a modern masterpiece.
(I love to add sparkly silvers and golds)
Not bad for something I learned 36 years ago in Girl Scouts!
(and sorry, voting already closed….there was a great assortment of amazing eggs!)
If you would still like to show me some love, go to @marthastewart on Instagram, find the best embellished eggs page, and vote for #8
I have no shame.
