I don’t know about you, but nowadays I just don’t prefer to dye Easter Eggs. Nowadays, I prefer to use other types of crafting mediums for my eggs. The sky is really the limit. I’ve used paint and clay and even modge podge and fabric and ribbon. For today, we are using Iron Orchid Designs Air Dry Clay and Decor Moulds. DIY Easter Eggs with Clay and Moulds!

- Decor Moulds
- DIY Paint
- Wooden Eggs
- Putty Knife
- Wooden Trough
- Easter Basket
- Egg Plate
- Egg Cups
- Hot Glue Gun
INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO CREATE EASTER EGGS WITH CLAY AND MOULDS.
Step one: After you have gathered your supplies, start by seasoning your mould with Corn Starch. Use an old paint brush and spread corn starch inside the mould. Shake out any excess.
Step two: Use your scraper to cut a piece of clay from the chunk of Air Dry Clay.
Step three: Roll clay into a ball and press into the mould.
Step four: Use scrapper and remove excess clay from mould. The micro rim will assist in ensuring a flat surface on the back of the mould.
Step five: Once you have pressed clay inside mould, turn mould upside down and let gravity remove the clay from the mould.
Step six: Once your moulds are created and before each dries you can glue them onto the wooden egg surface. Use Titebond or Hot Glue to adhere the clay mould to the wooden egg.
Let the clay mould and glue dry over night.
Step eight: Paint your wooden eggs with clay and moulds.
Step nine: Seal your paint with a top coat or wax. I prefer to use wax with clay and moulds as it gets into the crevices and creates a beautiful look.
