Painting Stripes on Eggs for Kate Spade Inspired Easter Wreath from MindOverHobby.comFor eggs with black and white stripes, touch up spots on the eggs with white acryllic paint as needed if coverage with spray paint was not sufficient. Using a black paint marker, paint stripes onto eggs all around, letting a few stripes at a time dry for 4-5 minutes before moving on to the next section. I placed eggs onto the wax paper for balance and control as I was drawing the stripes.
