My mom's formula. We did this every year at Easter. I thought everybody did it this way.
one egg dye kit - the Tablet kind that uses vinegar & water
12 eggs. Hard Boiled, I suppose, but you could color a RAW egg and laugh when
someone cracks it open and gets all messy! (evil. be nice!)
Step 1: Mom's Secret Formula
Make the egg dye almost according to instructions, which should resemble the following -
Drop tablet into 3Tbsp.vinegar and let dissolve. When the dye tablet
is completely dissolved, add 1/2 cup HOT water. (very important to use HOT water, not cold) Then
add a teaspoon or two of melted margarine to each mug of color.
Step 2: It's Magic!
Now dunk an egg. The egg will instantly(!) receive a beautiful whirling design as the margarine does a random resist.
Step 3: Wow! Cool!
Wipe any excess oil from the eggs. Now marvel at the wonder of your skill!
