Prepare silicone mold. Using decorating brushes and various shades of candy, paint cavities of mold.
Technique 1: Using brushes, paint overlapping stripes in egg cavities. Use different shades of violet to create unique effects.
Technique 2: Using brush or toothpick, drop several shades of violet into cavity; use brush to create marble effect.
Technique 3: Dip brush into violet candy and flick into cavity to create paint splatter.
