Step 1: Boil Eggs

First things first, we want to make sure those eggs are edible! Boil the eggs for about 20 minutes and then let the eggs cool off for at least one hour before you continue to the next step.

Step 2: Spread Some Shaving Cream in a Pan

Using a pan or any plate, grab the shaving cream and spread it across so have a nice flat surface to do your art!

Step 3: Decorate With Food Coloring

Using food coloring, drop a few drops of food coloring over the shaving cream to get the design that you want.

Step 4: Roll the Egg!

Next, roll the cooled eggs onto the colored shaving cream make sure you have a moderate amount of shaving cream all over the egg.

Step 5: Dry Off Eggs

Once you have all the eggs colored, then let the shaving cream dry off onto the egg for at least one hour.

Either wash off the eggs after for a less vibrant color or simply grab a piece of tissue and slowly rub it off.

It works best on card stock since printer paper gets very soggy and tears easily. When it is almost dry, you should put a heavy book on it so it dries flat.
