Watercolored blown eggs

Are these not colorful and full of spring!?
 I used a micron permanent pen, watercolored and then used master shine to seal the paint in and make them shiny!
This one is my favorite, this is inspired by Aimee Ray!
 Another Aimee Ray inspired design
 This basket was designed by me!

 Snail, and bugs by me! Flowers and strawberries by Aimee Ray designs!
 Vino and Flowers by LittleTurkishGirl Ashley J!!! Pug Angel! We had a great craft day today! Ocean and Russian doll are Aimee Ray.

How do you blow out the eggs? Poke a hole in the top and the bottom of the egg with a nail. Use a paperclip undone, stick it in the hole and stir up the egg to break the yolk. Use a small red drink straw to blow out the egg.
How to dry? Put the blown, empty eggs on a papertowel on a plate, and microwave for about 45 seconds or until the eggs are hot. Scrub off any excess leaked egg with a sponge. OR if you have time, leave eggs in a sunny location for a few days.
Other variations: Glitter your eggs! Use colored pencil or sharpie markers! Use tissue paper, scrapbook paper or stencils. Be inspired!
