Gorgeous Painted Eggs with a Folk-Inspired Twist

painted eggs by Dinara Mirtalipova

This time of year, paint­ed eggs are a pop­u­lar way to cel­e­brate spring and East­er. What comes to my mind is the egg dye kits you used to get from the gro­cery sto­ry. You’d use a cray­on to mask the area you want­ed to keep white and then dip the egg and hope it looked good. Most of it was left up to chance.

That process is the oppo­site of Dinara Mir­tal­ipo­va’s gor­geous paint­ed eggs. Using paint and a teeny tiny brush, she’s cov­ered them in her beau­ti­ful folk-inspired motifs. Their time­less design makes them appro­pri­ate well beyond the April show­ers or May flow­ers.

Dinara intro­duced the­se eggs a cou­ple of weeks ago and they quick­ly sold out in her Etsy shop. Have no fear, though. You can still have her gor­geous illus­tra­tive wares in your life through greet­ing cards, note­books, and my favorite, tea tow­els. (I have two of the tow­els in my kitchen!)
