After marble and copper… the cement trend (but I’m obviously not finished with the former).
I found this creative cement on the perles and co website and honestly it’s great. I had long discussions with my dad about cement and concrete (and the difference between them) and clearly, after inspection, this cement is specific. It’s super smooth, not very heavy and has a very nice finish (by the way I have another project on the way that really put’s forward it’s smoothness)
For the eggs I suggest using eggs from a farm close to where you live rather than horrible supermarket eggs! And then obviously use them for a cake, an omelet or another delicacy!
Happy Easter in advance friends and don’t forget to show me if you make these DIY cement Easter eggs!
- creative cement (mine from here)
- chalky paints (white, green, pink)
- susnet gold paint (here or here)
- paint brushes
- masking tape
- optionnal : sharpie métalliques
1- Start by emptying your eggs. With a knife poke a hole at the top.
2- Shake them vigorously to empty them
3 – Tince them well and let them dry
4-Prepare your cement following the instructions on your box (1 part water for 10 parts cement). Usinf your funel, fill your eggs to the top. Be careful if your cement is too liquid the water will resurface and gice the illusion of a full egg.
6- Peel your eggs. I did it just using my fingers (you can’t even imagine what my left nail looks like right now). You could probably use a knife or something to help you.
7- Once your eggs are peeled, mark of your painting zones with masking tape. I made some patterns that required successice paint – tape-paint-tape etc.
8- apply 2 or 3 coats of paint
9- Remove masking tape and voila!
