It’s not easy coming up with unique Easter egg projects! Every year I try to come up with an inspiration for Easter eggs that I haven’t seen before. Not an easy task!
Using metallic blue and white acrylic paints, I set out to paint some eggs inspired by the Blanton Museum of Art. The atrium of the BMoA features an installation of poured acrylic slats adhered to the walls, created by artist Teresita Fernandez. It’s called “Stacked Waters“.
I mixed up three shades of blue and sketched the design on the egg lightly in pencil.
Using a small, flat paint brush, I added varying shades of blue in horizontal segments, just like the walls of the museum.
To add some variety to the basket, I also rolled some of the eggs around in the leftover paint for fun. They definitely have the “Stacked Waters” look!
