PSusie's Psychedelic Easter Eggs

My mom's formula. We did this every year at Easter. I thought everybody did it this way.  

You need:
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!)

vinegar
melted margarine

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!

    Do you think this would work with mineral oil or vegetable oil instead of melted margarine?

    Cool eggs, going to try the oil in one of the cups and will let you know. Color kits are cheap so I can try it before kids are needed. lol
