I love the little garden eggs that come out of the nest. They are the coolest things ever, so I make them a big deal. I will eat them by the handful, or with a little dab of mayonnaise on top. They are a favorite of mine for breakfast and are my go-to pick-me-up for days when I just need a pick-me-up.
I’ve never personally gotten them, but I’ve read about them in various places. I’ve made them myself, but if you’re still reading this then it seems you’re not a gardener.
Garden eggs are the best thing ever! I actually love them so much that I started making my own! I recently made a batch of garden eggs and I think they are the best thing ever. I am thinking about making more, and I have a couple of recipes I can share with you.
They are tiny little pebbles that are the size of your fingernail, and the perfect size for a pincushion. I love them because they have a slightly crumbly texture which makes them pretty easy to clean. They’re great for holding my paint brushes, too. The best part is that they’re actually a bit different from the ones you’re most likely to find in the grocery store.
I’m not a big egg fan because I’ve seen a lot of egg-shaped crumbly things in the past, but this is the best! Not only is it a brilliant way to hold paint brushes, but I like the way the egg shapes are spaced. They look great under doors, too, and they’re also very durable when covered with a thin layer of paint.
I love the fact that garden eggs have little holes in the bottom or edges so you can poke them with a paint brush without the egg falling out. They’re also very easy to clean. If you’re worried about egg shell dust or other foreign particles, you can spray the egg with water and soak it in the sink. Then rinse it with warm water.
Here’s the thing I love about egg paint: it’s inexpensive. Unlike most paint, it doesn’t require a primer. For every egg you paint, you only need to buy a small amount of paint.
One of the more annoying things for us gardeners is that there is some variance in the kind of egg paint we have available. This is because there are lots of different egg colors, sizes, and thicknesses to choose from. So one of our favorite ways to keep our egg painting clean is to use a good paint brush and scrubbing motion. The other is to use your finger to do a quick wipe across the painting surface.
But even with a good brush and a good scrubbing motion, there are a lot of things to avoid when painting eggs. The first thing you want to do is to use a non-toxic paint, because that will make it a lot easier to scrub. The second thing you should do is to keep your finger well away from the egg in case it gets slippery or greasy over night. The third thing you want to do is to wear gloves.
That is a good tip, and I didn’t even realize it until I saw this video. Using a brush with a fine tip that can’t scratch the surface is a good way to make sure you don’t scratch the surface. Using a clean, non-toxic paint will also make it a lot easier to scrub.
