Easter Egg Ducks


The most delicious meals are served at Easter. And a nicely decorated Easter table makes the meal taste even better. Our Easter Egg Ducks top any table decoration off and spread cheerfulness already in the making.

 

This is what you need:
Pelikan opaque paintbox (alternatively Pelikan PLAKA), paintbrush (hair paintbrush and bristle paintbrush size 6), hard wad or Styrofoam® ball (Ø ca. 30 mm), Pelikan Fineliner (blue or green), a knife, a pair of scissors and Pelifix all-purpose glue or crafting glue, blown out eggs, the download templates (one page makes three ducks) and colored paper (orange).

It's as easy as this:

  1. In our example, the eggs are unpainted. If you like, you certainly can also paint them with opaque or PLAKA paints to fit your imagination. Let them dry thoroughly for a better adherence of the glue. By the way, when finished, the top of the egg make the duck's tail.
  2. Print out the template on a piece of colored paper and carefully cut out all of the parts.
  3. Make a cut into the ball of hard wad or Styrofoam® ball down to the center. Fold the beak of the duck and clamp it into the previously made cut using the back of a knife. Draw two eyes onto the duck's head with the fineliner.
  4. Glue the head onto the lower third of the bottom area of the egg.
  5. Make a cut into the tail part on the marked spot so it clings better to it. Apply glue onto the mark and attach the tail positioning it so that it stands away from the upper area of the egg.
  6. Also apply glue dots to the wings. When gluing them onto the back of the duck, mind covering the tail a little.
  7. Finally, apply glue to the marked area on the feet. Hold the duck in balance and glue the feet on concentrically.
  8. When the glue has dried, the duck should be able to stand on its feet. In case it leans to the side, support the feet with an additional piece of colored paper.
