Add one part water to two parts sugar in a pot and bring to a boil.
Let the sugar mixture cool and then apply a coat to the eggs.
Add plenty of watercolours here and there.
You can mix different colours or use just one.
Let the eggs dry and then tie a piece of hemp twine around them.
Painting eggs with watercolours is fun and produces striking results. Remember not to cover the entire egg with paint; leave some areas white. The sugar mixture causes the paint to flow out in beautiful patterns. The result is a lovely, variegated Easter egg for decoration.
