I have used egg paint several times for all kinds of occassions. I just love it and it's fun for kids to do to. It's a lot less messy than sprinkles (and cheaper too!) but if you really want the sugar add some plain sugar to the paint or sprikle some on after you paint. This is great for a group to do too. All you need is some of those cheap little water color brushes for kids from the dollar store. Eggs paints let you be creative and even if you your not an artists the cookis look so pretty anyway! Try this if you haven't already;O). Read More

This paint does not expand (even if your cookie does) as it bakes. Does make beautiful jewel tone colors though. Read More

Real easy and works very well! I divided the egg and put it in separate bowls and made each one a different color - the kids had a great time! Read More

I used this to paint fall colors on sugar cookies that were in the shapes of leaves. I used Wilton icing colors (which is super concentrated food coloring). I'd say I used a hearty glob on a toothpick for each color (how's that for exact measurements). The colors were vibrant and shiny. Will definitely make again!! Read More

Wonderful! I copied the fall leaves and they turned out beautifully. I also added 2 or 3 drops of Maple Extract to flavor the wash slightly. Read More

This was so easy and my cookies came out looking great. I actually just used half a yolk and some food coloring (2 egg yolks to make 4 colors) and painted designs on egg shaped sugar cookies. The colors were bright and it couldn't have been easier. I will remember this when Christmas rolls around! Read More

I just tried this on sugar cookies with my kids. They had so much fun. They didn't even want to use the sprinkles (which are messier and more expensive). The cookies turned out beautiful. This will definitely become a new tradition for our family! Read More
