dress up your eggs
Solid colors too ho-hum for your tastes? Fancy up your eggs with these simple tricks:

  • Make marbled/speckled eggs by using the cold dye method, and adding a splotch of cooking oil to the cooled dye. Pop in the egg and let it sit until itís reached a shade you like.
  • Collect flowers or leaves (itís best to make sure said materials arenít poisonous if youíre planning on eventually eating your eggs); arrange these elements on your egg, and secure in place by wrapping the whole thing in a bit of cut-up pantyhose. Tie up the pantyhose with some string, and proceed to hot-dye.
  • Wrap small rubber bands around your eggs before cold-dying them, to get decorative lines.
  • Removed the freshly dyed egg from the liquid and blot with a sponge for a textured look.
  • Buff 'em up: once youíve finished dying your eggs and letting them dry, dab some cooking oil on a paper towel and rub over the eggs to shine them up.
