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!)
