My son is going through his Super Mario Bros. phase. I don't know that I ever got over mine. Playing Nintendo for countless hours is one of my fondest childhood memories. With Easter right around the corner, I thought I would surprise him with these Awesome Super Mario Nintendo Eggs.

I'm not an artist and I know these aren't perfect, but I think they still came out pretty cool. I used images from my iphone to replicate the  the Nintendo characters. I basically drew the images on with a pencil and then used Acrylic paint to fill them in. I used Sharpie Paint markers to fill in small details like the pupils.

WARNING: These are for fun only. Do not eat eggs that have been painted with Acrylic paint.

awsome, but you forgot the yoshi egg ( not yoshi but his egg)
lmnopeas (author)  chicopluma2 years ago
Actually, I did make the Yoshi egg, The detail for him was pretty easy, so I didn't include him in the final pics. Just three circles painted green.

Awesome! Did you blow out the egg? I think you can put a clear coat on top and it will last longer. Maybe an experienced artist can help us out with this?
Yes Idid blow out the egg. Tomorro i give the egg a coat (painting medium)

Wow!!! Awesome!!

These are very cool. You might want to blow the eggs out, then you could keep them. When I was younger I loved doing that and oddly 15+ years later I still have some! (Go figure!)
lmnopeas (author)  poofrabbit2 years ago
Wow, that's awesome. 15+ years! Originally I just did this for the kids for fun, but I wish I would have blown out the eggs. Guess I'll just have to make them again.

SUPER work! It'll be crying shame to crack one open and destroy the art. ;-( ;-)
lmnopeas (author)  bajablue2 years ago
Thank you! I agree! It took a long time to finish all the details. I'm going to let the kids play with them on Easter though. I hope some of them survive, but I doubt it. ;)
Love the bullet-bill one! hahahhaha
lmnopeas (author)  AussieAnglerGal2 years ago
I figured I had to include him. He's a classic!
defiantly! its great :)
mikeasaurus2 years ago
So fun, great job!
lmnopeas (author)  mikeasaurus2 years ago
Thanks!
Awesome! Though it is a pain, you could poke a hole in each end first and blow out the innards. Though, you would have to be gentle when you paint :)
lmnopeas (author)  Penolopy Bulnick2 years ago
Thank you Penolopy! I'm going to have to try this trick. :)

That's so awesome.. perfect time for Easter!

Maybe you can do the pinhole trick and blow out the raw egg instead of boiling them. That way there's no issue with keeping the eggs for longer.
lmnopeas (author)  Nekochiii2 years ago
Thanks!

I've never tried that trick before, but knowing me, I would probably drop the egg and it would shatter to pieces. It's worth a try though. They should keep for a while in the fridge. We'll see how many many make it after Easter!
