Queen Margrethe continues the tradition of painting eggs as part of the Danish Royal Family’s Easter traditions at Marselisborg Palace.
In the 2019 video, Queen Margrethe uses watercolour paints but acrylic, puff paint or spray paint can also be used.
How to Hollow Out Eggs
Here is how you hollow out the eggs before having a go at painting your own.
- Wash and dry eggs.
- Using a large needle, pierce both ends of the shell, making sure you insert the needle deep enough to break the egg yolk.
- Wiggle the needle around in a circular motion to open the hole at one end of the egg.
- Hold the egg over a bowl, blow into the large opening at one end of the egg to force the egg white and yolk out.
