I’ve found that having a little background knowledge in color theory goes a long way when trying to create the ombre effect. Ombre eggs are a great craft for this time of year. Here’s what you need: a few dozen eggs (either hard boiled or paper), paint, brushes, and metallic ink. Pick the base hue you want to start with. Then decide if you want to add white, black, or both to get the desired affect. Once the paint has dried on the eggs, sprinkle the metallic ink on the surface to make them look speckled. Display them in a way that shows the variance of color and your set! If you’re stuck getting started, look for creativity in other places. My color thought process was inspired by this great Carhartt Tee.
