Clear acrylic fixative
Directions: 1. Hold an egg between your middle finger and thumb (or use a craft lathe) while decorating it. 2. Gouache paints are opaque, matte colors that dry very quickly. Apply them liberally to each egg as a basecoat. Let the basecoat dry. 3. When the paint is dry, hold an egg in the palm of your hand and paint each end. Allow paint to dry. 4. Use a sharp pencil to lightly sketch mosaic designs created with small squares, triangles or other geometric shapes onto eggs. Paint the sketched designs. After the paint dries, outline the designs with a soft pencil or colored pencil. 5. Spray the finished eggs with fixative.
