so my easter holidays started with way to many sic days. now that i’m more or less back to health i decided to dye my easter eggs.
i actually wanted to invent somehing new :P and use lemon juice to make the egg reject the dye on some parts… well that didn’t work out.
anyways, from the beginning.
when using brown eggs your egg dye won’t work as much as you want it to. so when you cook your eggs add vinegar to the water. after cooking, bath eggs in vinegar and scrub off the muddy part. see the result below. amazing huh?
so when the original plan didn’t work out i went for my favorite egg dyeing process. using old tights and leafs from the garden. place the still hot egg on the tights and add the leaf. be sure not to move the leaf when you close the tights around the egg.
after some minutes you can take out your eggs. be sure your eggs are still hot when you put them into the dye.
now, some of the eggs didn’t really turn out as i wanted them. so i had to think of something to save them. so i created dinosaur eggs ;)
first, make sure your eggs are green.
using a toothpick and opaque white i made tiny spots and stripes onto the egg. i also tried to print a leaf onto the egg but this didn’t work out as i thought it would.
i also made bigger dotts with a paintbrush.
even though these eggs didn’t turn out as i wanted them too i think they look pretty unique now.
