Spanish version: Como pintar huevos de pascua de Angry Birds
As every year we were decorating shells for Easter, this time we painted them using edible vegetable dye, it was very easy and it is very convenient, because it is very economical especially when you are going to paint many eggs.
If you’re using food coloring, you can even cook the eggs before painting and then eat them.
With the basic colors, red, blue, green and yellow, many combinations can result and play with the tone, since you can make them pastel colors or vibrant colors.
Now that the film The Angry Birds Movie is about to be released, my children asked me to paint the eggs based on these characters, which are actually easy to draw, check out the video with the step by step below.
If you have kids you probably know these angry birds, but if not, here I share the trailer for you to see them and give you an idea of their faces.
How to paint Angry Birds Easter eggs
Clean, dry egg shells
Vegetable Color or Water Paintings
Tablecloth or newspaper (optional)
I recommend covering the surface where you’re going to work, either with a plastic tablecloth or newspaper.
Start drawing with a pen the eyes of the birds making a few circles on the masking tape and cut.
Stick the tape eyes very well on each egg, thinking on the character that we want to achieve.
Place water and vinegar in the same measure in different disposable cups (one for each color).
Add 15 to 20 drops of dye to each of the glasses and mix.
Dip the eggs or shells into the dye, one by one, covering them completely.
The longer we leave them, the stronger the color.
When they are the desired color, we take out and let dry.
After the shells are dried, remove the eyes of masking tape and draw the faces of the Angry Birds. I recommend drawing them with a pencil and then with a permanent marker.
Angry Birds faces are very easy to create, as you can see and you can achieve various effects if you draw your eyes differently.
After painting the Angry Birds eggs shells fill them with confetti (or flour hehe) and they are ready!
