Step 5

Use the unmixed paint that matches the base colour on each egg, first painting the hair – this will require two layers once again, leaving to dry in between each layer.

Step 6

Once dry, use a black permanent marker to draw over the facial features.

Step 7

Finally, use varying shades of the base colour to add in further details to add to the character of each egg.
