An alternative to Steps 1 and 2 is to print out any of these Easter egg templates on A4 or Letter size paper.
Put the printed page under the acetate sheet. You can tape both sheets onto the table to fix them in place while you draw. With a black permanent marker, trace the egg outlines and designs onto the acetate sheet.
Put various colors of glass paint on your palette. You can get stained glass paints or window glass paints from craft stores or try making this homemade glass paint recipe.
Have fun painting the eggs. Check out these tips:
You can also paint directly on plain eggs. Paint the entire egg with one color. Use your fingers, a fine paint brush or a cotton swab to paint dots, lines, swirls and other details. For best results, let the background color dry before painting the details.
Another idea you can try is to paint the details using an opaque paint like undiluted acrylic paint or poster paint.
Once dry, cut out the eggs. The homemade glass paint is water-based, so if you painted your eggs with them, try not to handle the egg suncatchers with moist hands.
