Color Easter Eggs with Markers using Tombow Dual Brush Pens
Yes, you can Color Easter Eggs with Markers using Tombow Dual Brush Pens! I'm here to share a super quick and easy alternative to dyeing your Easter eggs. Create pastel watercolor Easter eggs instead. Watercolor Easter eggs would be so pretty, so I tried the real ones first, but I couldn’t get the Dual Brush Pen ink to stick to the real shells – craft fail! Painted wooden Easter eggs worked much better and you only need a few supplies!

Here's what you need to Dye Eggs with Markers for Easter:
- Tombow Dual Brush Pens – Pastel 10-pack
- Spray Mister from the Tombow Blending Kit
- Wooden Easter Eggs – these are perfect!
- Americana Acrylic Craft Paint by DecoArt – Titanium White
- Craft Paint Brush
- Plastic Bag – Gallon Size
- Paper Towels
Here's how to Color Easter Eggs with Tombow Dual Brush Pens:
Basecoat the unfinished wooden eggs with Titanium White Americana acrylic craft paint, set eggs aside to dry. Apply a second coat, if necessary.
Select the colors of Dual Brush Pens from the Pastel Set that you’d like to use. I started with 452 Process Blue, 553 Mist Purple and 243 Mint.
Apply Pastel Dual Brush Pen ink directly to the outside of the plastic bag and spray lightly with the Tombow Spray Mister. Slide your hand inside the bag, place the wooden egg on your palm, then squeeze and rotate. Set aside on top of paper towels to dry. Make sure to clean the outside of the plastic bag between colors.
Watch this quick video to see the entire process:
Once the first coat of watercolor is dry, add additional layers of Tombow Dual Brush Pen color. Experiment with color combinations and saturation to create depth and interest.
