This year we didn’t have a lot of time for egg dyeing. So we used a PAAS egg dye kit. By the end we wanted to add a little extra pizzazz to the colors, so we put in about 5 drops of McCormack’s Neon food dyes to the different colors of PAAS dye. The colors came out very vibrant (as you can see in the photos below)…
If you have more time, I’d recommend trying to dye eggs naturally. It’s a lot of fun and it’s fulfilling to know you did it with natural food products. You can find out how to dye eggs naturally in the links below…
UPDATE: Edee Lyons sent me these ideas for creative tools to use with eggs for special effects when dyeing: "Crayons, tape, wax and acrylic paint. That should make the chick inside smile with delight as it goes spinning and spinning in your hands…" Thanks Edee! If anyone else would like to share any ideas for interesting effects with eggs, feel free to comment below. -Mama Lisa
