I don’t really remember decorating easter eggs as a kid. Growing up in the Philippines, I was so accustomed to the plastic ones that remind me of those vendo surprise eggs. This year, I decided I’d give it a shot.
I started out by boiling a few eggs. Hey, if it didn’t work out, I could still use them for my salad dinners.
I had a few bottles of food dye. In low mason jars, I mixed a few drops of dye, water and vinegar.
Try using McCormick’s Food and Egg Coloring Dye for this project.
I started out by dipping the eggs in the dye. Here I left one egg in the turquoise, and held another one upright in pink.
I waited for a minute or two, then changed the dip angle of the eggs in the dye.
Then, I repositioned them again and left them for much longer.
I think I could have added even more dye drops in the mix, but I loved the pastel look.
I pat the eggs dry and let them sit for a while.
What do you think of my first dye job? Not too bad, eh? Try it out yourself. Happy Crafting!
