egg dying techniques: part 3

marbled egg dying

how to make them:

• in different containers, combine one tablespoon of each of the following: oil, vinegar, and your choice of food coloring.

• add enough water to make the liquid deep enough to cover an egg.

• swirl the liquid with a spoon, and quickly lower and raise an egg into it.

• pat dry with a paper towel, and repeat with a second color.

• swirl into a third color, if desired. Some white areas can be left on the egg.

• gently pat dry the completed egg, leaving a bit of the oil to give the egg a varnished look.
note: If you plan to eat your Easter eggs, decorate them only with food-grade dyes. click here for the USDA’s tips on Easter and Passover egg safety.
