Eggs Coloring

Dyeing and decorating eggs isn’t as tricky as it seems. Follow this easy, step-by-step video that’ll assure your Easter eggs are perfect everytime.

To empty a raw egg, begin by using the tip of a sharp utility knife to pierce both ends of the egg; turn the knife in one of the holes to widen it slightly. Then, poke a straightened paper clip through the larger hole to pierce and “stir” the yolk. Hold the egg, larger hole down, over a bowl, and then blow the contents out with a rubber ear syringe.

My problem is the next day. After dyeing the eggs and drying them I place them in the refrigerator. When I take them out for Easter they’re all splotchy. Condensation makes the dye run and the porousness of the shell does something. How do I make them look good?

If you want to save your eggs from year to year or turn them into ornaments to hang from branches, blow them out instead of hard-boiling the eggs before dyeing them.

There’s no need to buy special kits for dyeing Easter eggs—all the ingredients you need are probably already in your cupboards. This recipe uses liquid food coloring, but you can also use paste. Experiment with combining different colors to produce new shades—for instance, 17 drops of yellow and 3 of red will produce a brilliant orange.

It works! The kids have stained finger tips but thats part of the fun.

WOW!!! I CAN’T WAIT to try this method and experiment with different tools and colors! Thanks Epicurious!! Happy Easter!

Tip: Try dyeing different types of eggs in order to vary the sizes — use quail for smaller and goose or ostrich for larger. Also consider dyeing brown eggs to alter the range of colors you can produce.

Answers to your “Is it safe?” questions about hard-boiling and dyeing eggs for spring

Protect your work area with paper towels or newspaper. Mix 1 teaspoon of vinegar and 20 drops of food coloring (use more to intensify color) in 1 cup of hot water in a heatproof bowl, cup, or jar deep enough to let you submerge an egg completely. To create different tints, vary the dipping time. Using tongs makes handling the eggs easy. 

Here are some ways to create designs on your eggs: ·Wrap a portion of the egg with a rubber band before dyeing. Once the egg is dry, remove the rubber band to reveal the white, undyed strip underneath.

·Another way to block off portions of the egg: Affix stickers or tape in shapes such as daisies or dots before dyeing. Remove once the egg is dry. ·A third way to block off portions: Before dyeing, draw on the egg with a light-colored crayon or wax.

If desired, once the egg is dry, the wax can be softened by holding the egg over a candle flame and then wiped off. ·All three of these methods can also be used to create two-toned eggs: Dye the whole egg a light color, such as pink, and let it dry.

Then wrap the egg with a rubber band, affix stickers, or draw a design in crayon. Dye the egg a second color, such as blue. Once dry, remove the rubber band, stickers, or crayon. The areas blocked off will remain the first color (in this case, pink), while the rest of the egg will turn a combination of the 2 colors (in this case, purple).

·Dip a portion of the egg in one color and another portion in another color. If the two sections overlap, that area will turn a combination of the two colors.

Hand-dyed eggs make great gifts, but delivering them can be tricky. Save time and effort by upcycling clear plastic egg cartons, which you can quickly turn into attractive carriers. We dressed ours up in scalloped organdy or sheets of tissue paper, and satin and grosgrain ribbon, and affixed card-stock tags with stamped greetings.

PreparationTo make 1 color Line large baking sheet with paper towels and top with wire cooling rack. In small bowl or cup, stir together 1/2 cup boiling water, vinegar, and food coloring. Immerse eggs in dye, turning occasionally to ensure even coating, until desired color, about 5 minutes.

Using slotted spoon or tongs, remove eggs from dye and transfer to rack to drain. Refrigerate when dry.

To make a tritoned dipped egg, dye the whole egg first in a light color, let dry for 15 minutes, and then submerge both top and bottom into a darker color (leaving the center exposed) Then submerge egg halfway horizontally in a different shade, repeat with opposite side again leaving a portion of the center uncolored.

Acheieving desired shades is really easy with our printable egg-dyeing color wheel chart.  It provides the dye amount and dipping times for a large range of colors.    

This was the way we always dyed eggs as kids and how I dye eggs with my girls now. We always used crayons growing up, but never thought of stickers or rubberbands. I can’t wait to try that this year! When we were kids, we each saved our last egg for the “ugly egg contest” which was started when someone tried a three-tone and it didn’t come out right. As to the splotchy results due to condensation, my mom would always rub them with a bit of vegetable oil on a paper towel. It gave the eggs a pretty sheen and made the colors pop a bit more and we never had spotty issues.

We use wonderful farmer’s market eggs so they vary in shape, size and color but this recipe always makes lovely eggs. The condensation can make them look a little funky or the dye does goofy things but they all get eaten anyways and the color does look good. Really easy to do too!
