Since Easter is less than a week away, it’s time to start strategizing the egg-decorating situation. Most people (guilty) usually settle for the store-bought dye that usually makes eggs a charming puke color instead of bright magenta. If you’ve fallen victim to said unfortunate situation, you might want to take a cue from Instructables member Imnopeas.
This awesome mom recently surprised her son with these Super Mario Bros. eggs, all hand painted with acrylics. So how did they come out so cool?! Imnopeas explains that she used pictures on her iPhone to replicate the characters and a pencil to do some rough outlines. Then she went to town painting, and the result is pure awesome. Looks like her son has to come up with one heck of a Mother’s Day gift.
As Imnopeas warns, if you take on this Nintendo challenge, don’t eat the eggs since acrylics are involved. They’re way too impressive to chow down anyway.
