In the Instagram post regarding her new faux-terrazzo egg-decorating method, Martha Stewart hints at the answer to the question, “WHAT IS TERRAZZO?” But does she ever really answer it? Although it might be hard to spot, we’re going to go with, “Yes, she does.” And she does it quite cleverly, in fact.
First, Stewart begins with a clue that calls to mind things composed of stone (such as marble, sand, and glass…get it?): “Get ready to rock this Easter with a chic, new egg-decorating technique: faux terrazzo” (emphasis added). Stewart then outlines the process for decorating the egg, beginning with a reminder to blow out your eggs or hard-cook them (but don’t eat them after you decorate them) before getting to the two-step process of brushing the egg with matte adhesive and then sprinkling on some colorful “craft-flakes.” Now, when you think about what terrazzo looks like, doesn’t it seem as if Stewart’s Easter egg-making method almost offers a super-scaled version of how real terrazzo is actually made? (Except instead of matte adhesive, you’ve got epoxy, and instead of colorful craft-flakes, you’ve got marble and glass.)
“Everyone who spots the results will be floored,” she concludes. “Floored!” See what she did there? For more hilarity from Martha Stewart and her partner-in-crime, Snoop Dogg, don’t miss the “Potluck Dinner Party.”
