These non-toxic golden egg bath bombs are covered with edible gold spray paint and lightly dusted with gold cosmetic glitter. The inside of the bomb is colored purple. The coloring of the actual bath bomb itself is important to get a nice gold tone. If the bomb itself is too light or bright the gold will look more yellow and not realistic. Purple, blue or most other darker shades make a nice base for the edible gold paint.
The cosmetic glitter is quite fine and adheres to the gold spray when wet. Simply sprinkle it on.

Golden Egg Bath Bomb DIY
Makes 4 large egg sized bath bombs, 6-8 standard sized (like a chicken egg)
Ingredients for Bath Bombs
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup citric acid
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup epsom salts
1/4 tsp essential oil (I used a lavender and orange blend)
1 tbs water
Supplies for Golden Egg Bath Bombs
large plastic egg molds/candy holders
1-2 cans of Wilton edible Gold Color Spray
1/4-1/2 tsp cosmetic glitter (very fine glitter)
Directions for Golden Egg Bath Bombs
Mix together the dry ingredients for bath bombs, then add the oil, essential oil and water. Take care to whisk quickly as you add the water so it can blend in before causing much reaction.
Add the gel food coloring. It may take a few doses to get a nice rich tone. It doesn’t have to be too dark, but can’t be pale either to get best results.
Pack the bath bomb mixture into each side of a plastic egg candy holder. Press down to ensure the mold is well packed, then add more. Press down, once sides are full add an extra scoop on each side and press firmly together. Set the bath bomb filled molds aside to set for about 1/2 an hour, then remove to dry out for about another hour before painting (longer is fine).
Once the egg bath bombs are dry, shake a can of the Wilton edible gold paint and mist on the bath bombs. It will take a number of coats to fully cover the egg with gold paint. While the spray is still wet sprinkle on some gold cosmetic glitter to add more glisten to the Golden Egg bath bombs.
