Do not make the mistake we did and put them too near a heat source. They require to be dried at a constant temperature level.

We presented our dough until it had to do with 5mm thick and cut out our egg shapes.
Then we put holes in our eggs, a single hole in the center for a hanging decoration or more holes for bunting.
When we had cut out all the egg forms we left them 24 hours to dry. As I stated earlier it is key to dry them in a location with a consistent temperature to avoid cracking.
Once they are dry then comes the fun part, the designing. The young boys decided that they desired to go all neon on our eggs, so we utilized our Staedtler triplus colour neon pens.
The young boys had a lot of enjoyable drawing patterns and images onto the eggs. This DIY white clay is brilliant for colouring on with felt pens, markers or sharpies. You might even utilize fineliners and make really detailed patterns.
I likewise tried sharpies, ball point and routine felt suggestion pens on our DIY clay Easter ornaments and they all worked.
