If painting is not your thing or let’s say it is, but your skills are secret yet to the world, you might want to try this technique to decorate hard boiled eggs this Easter: lend a personal touch to your decor by dressing your eggs in a paper napkin pattern that catches your eye! When properly stored (3-4 days in the fridge), these easter eggs can be safely eaten afterwards.
~ White hard boiled eggs, cold
~ Paper napkins
~ Pasteurized egg whites, lightly beaten
~ Start by cutting out a section of the napkin that has the design you want to use on it. Cut pretty close to the design; if you leave too much extra white space, it will bunch up on your egg when you glue it down.
~ Dip brush into the beaten egg whites and apply the design on the front center of the egg Dip brush into egg whites and gently smooth the napkin from the center out.
~ Let the egg dry on a paper towel
~ For a glossier effect, when dry, wipe the eggs with vegetable oil (using a paper towel)
