Gilded Eggs

I picked up these "eggs" at Walmart yesterday.

Well, when I picked them up, they looked like this.

They were kind of egg shaped ping pong balls, just oozing potential.

I began by painting them with a mixture of ASCP Pure White and Provence.

Then, I applied some Cire A Dorer Gilding Wax with a damp, wadded up paper towel.

Looking for more inspiration? I'm looking forward to participating in the Bluebonnet Blog Hop next week.  Come see how Texas bloggers are welcoming Spring.

    1. Where do you get the guilding wax?

    2. Hi Stacey,
      I bought this wax when I was buying Annie Sloan Chalk Paint from The Purple Painted Lady online for another project. I'm sure other brands at places like Hobby Lobby would be the same.

  7. Do you know how much I love these! I saw them on IG, and oohed and awwed then too.
    Love this project! Pinned.
