Eggcellent Tips to Dye For
The wax will show through the dye and create an eye-catching design. Why not bedazzle your eggs? Use glue to affix sequins, rhinestones, glitter and beads to your eggs. One approach kids are sure to absorb is sponging your eggs. Place acrylic paint into a shallow dish, dip the sponge into the paint and pat the egg with it. For a marbled look, place a tablespoon each of oil, vinegar and food coloring. Add enough water to cover the egg and stir. Drop the egg in and out in a quick manner. Pat dry with a paper towel. Rubber bands are also great for different designs. Wrap your eggs with elastic bands and drop them in the egg dye. Remove eggs and let them dry. Take the rubber bands off, and you'll see white in the areas where the bands were. If you want different colors in those areas, drop them back in another dye. Remember, when it comes to decorating Easter eggs, the dye is the limit!
