Metallic Sharpie Easter Eggs

I love black and white and the look of some of the Makenzie Childs products just make me happy! Today, I'm going to attempt the look using Sharpies...

I found the chalkboard black and the silver eggs at Michaels, the white ones were from Target dollar spot and I used them in this egg project too.

Sharpies come in all colors and shapes as well as paint pens

finished eggs and sharpies

I used a combination of these paint pens and the metallic Sharpies for this project. 

I began by lightly sketching lines on some of the eggs with pencil.

The pencil will wipe off at the end if any lines are still visible.

Next, I just started painting with the Sharpie markers.

I had a little better luck with the metallic permanent Sharpie markers than the paint pens because the markers dried quicker.

I just filled in, added dots, and kept going back over the eggs until I was satisfied.

If you make any mistakes, you can easily go over the lines again.

I think they look great as they are but I did use a pearl wax on the black eggs when I was finished to give the black matte a little pizazz.

I think these easy to make eggs look great just left in the carton or in a wooden bowl.
