Today, thanks to The Happy Egg Company, we had the opportunity to dye brown Easter eggs. Usually I choose white eggs, thinking that you will get the most vibrant color and have so many options. However, I learned that using the brown eggs, the pigments in the brown shell help to produce more jewel-like color tones. No letting the egg sit in the dye for 30 min and still not getting the results I really wanted. What do you think of the result below?
Now I’m a mom of convenience. I like running to the store to get the latest and greatest, or even themed Easter egg dying kits, but for you “all natural folks”, I hear there are other fantastic ways of making your own dye. Colorful foods like carrots, blueberries and coffee can be boiled in water to make an all natural dye.
My happy dyers!
