Blanks for decorating in the form of gypsum eggs can be made at any time of the year, then for the holiday they will only have to get the paint and paint it.
To make gypsum eggs you need a specially prepared eggshell. Carefully pierce the egg at one end, widen the hole a little, carefully pour the contents, rinse the shells thoroughly. Put the shells prepared in this way into the egg tray and dry.
To prepare the gypsum mortar, take water and gypsum in a ratio of 1: 1.5 - 1: 2. The thicker solution hardens faster. Quickly pour the gypsum solution into the shells. Gypsum will harden for 2 - 3 days. After a day, you can remove the shells and leave the castings to dry in the air.The shell is not removed very easily, in order to simplify the process, knock the shells filled with gypsum lightly, roll on a hard surface, and then carefully separate the pieces of shell from the plaster cast.
When the plaster eggs dry out, you can proceed to the next stage of work. Plaster blanks must be sanded. Start with the largest sandpaper and finish off the smallest. Using a napkin or cloth, remove the gypsum dust from the surface.
Now it is necessary to prime the surface of the eggs so that the paint does not peel off during the decoration process. For this you need to prepare a special solution. A mixture of water and PVA glue is best. The proportion of approximately 1: 1 - 2: 1, depends on the thickness of the adhesive. Simply mix the glue and water to make white water, apply the mixture to the entire surface of the egg. Dry it.
Then you can proceed directly to decorating Easter eggs. To do this, tint acrylic lacquer with a small amount of paint and apply on the surface of gypsum eggs prepared for decorating in the form of patterns, chaotic strokes, pattern. Dry it.Additionally, it is not necessary to varnish the surface of the eggs.
