Resene kids art with Mark Rayner - Project 117

Difficulty level: Moderate

You will need: Cardboard toilet roll tube, Paintbrushes, Polystyrene egg (these are available from most craft shops), PVA glue Scissors, Resene Art Action Quick Dry, Resene testpots of Resene Alabaster, Resene Bonanza and Resene Nero

Top tip: You could also use the empty shell from a real boiled egg – just be careful not to crack it too much while scooping out the inside.

Here's another idea: This crafty egg man was painted with Resene testpots of Resene All Black, Resene Bright Red and Resene Vista White.
