Your all familiar with those plastic eggs that come around this time of the year for Easter. I always had Egg hunts in the backyard when my kids where young. That was so much fun hiding the eggs, then watching them running back and forth all over the yard looking for that one egg. I always had that one egg…the big prize egg! Inside I tucked a bill inside and some special surprises!So thinking of the golden eggs…why not make your own. I took the plastic eggs outside to spray….

Yes, those plastic eggs you can purchase at the dollar store…a whole bag for a dollar!  To make some really sparkly golden eggs….I used Rustoleum Mirror Effect

This is how the eggs turned out:

The silver eggs in the background were painted with  Krylon Looking Glass Spray paint

The silver eggs original colors kinda shine through. Don’t those look pretty? Those 2 cans of different paints I used on these eggs, I have used before on many crafts. Here are some:

Those are when I did the mercury glass technique. This next one I used the Gold on to create the same look:

A lot different look in Gold!

My candlesticks are so pretty!

My lamp looks so pretty now! The one below, I painted the handles, candle holder, and small flower pot:

With the Rustoleum Mirror Gold Spray Paint I did these:

I painted some of the shells gold. I also did the background in the gold. Isn't it pretty! I just wanted to give you a idea on what you can do with these particular paints. For full tutorials and to view hundreds of projects, visit my website..
