Over the next couple of days I’m going to write about a couple of ways to dye eggs that have worked well with the kids. Hopefully these will work for you, too.
Here are some pics from egg dying with oil to marbleize that I posted last year, it is my favorite way to color eggs.
We used canola oil – and you can marbleize the eggs or even just go for it all random (this is the best approach w/the under 8 set) and it makes for a beautiful egg!
See the oil on the top of the dye? Isn’t that pretty?
It is very simple.
Fill your egg cup 2/3 way with water.
Add 1 tbs vinegar – the more vinegar you use the more brilliant the color.
Add your dye, either tablet or food coloring.
Add 1 tbs oil.
Roll the egg around and it will marbleize. There are some great images of what it should look like if you do it properly here on Martha Stewart.
