Step

Begin by laying an egg out on a paper towel and spray painting the top surface. Be sure to use multiple light coats rather than one thick one.

Step

Let it dry thoroughly, and then adhere a symbol sticker to the center of the spray painted area. Spray paint over it in a contrasting color.

Step

Let the second paint color dry thoroughly as well, and remove the sticker to reveal the symbol. Use a toothpick or tweezers to remove the sticker if you're having trouble grasping it without damaging the painted surface.

Tip: Metallic colors seemed to take longer to dry, so give them an extra half hour before attempting to touch them or attach a sticker.

The final result is a unique two-tone finish with a touch of the first color poking out from behind the second.

You might also try letters... perhaps the first letter of each of your family members' names. Or you could even spell out short words if you have smaller stickers!
