Meant to post this last week but let it slip my mind. We dyed our Easter eggs like this every year while I was growing up, and I've always been surprised by how few people have done it. All you need is a plain ole dye kit, nothing fancy. In this case, even if it says COLD water you'll have to ignore that and use boiling water as was necessary in the past. Put each dye tablet in a mug, along with a teaspoon of cooking oil (or bacon grease works, that's what Gran used....bacon and eggs, haha :big_smile. I'm not sure if the dye kits call for vinegar anymore, but if so add that also; then pour in your hot water. When you dip your boiled eggs, the color will only stick to parts of them, making WONDERFUL designs automatically! They sort of resemble a map, or a puzzle perhaps. You may dip them in more than one color (let dry a minute in between) to achieve different effects.....sometimes changing the existing color spots, but also adding new ones in other areas. Don't dip them in TOO many colors though, or they'll end up as the ugly duckling; an unappealing brownish green tone. However, we always used the ugliest one as the "prize" egg! :wink: Set them aside to drip dry for a few minutes, then polish with a soft cloth or paper towel to remove the excess slickness. Gives them a bit of a sheen as well, which is neat too! Voila, lovely Easter eggs that make people ask "HOW did you DO that?!" :cool2: Happy early Easter everybody! Have fun!!!
