Marbled Easter Eggs For A Happy Holiday

You can use lots of ways for decorating your easter eggs, but one of them is simply gorgeous. We can make marbled eggs this year. The natural separation of oil and water create wonderful design. Practically all the ingredients you already have at your kitchen. So let`s try.

Things you need:

  • glass bowls
  • measuring cup
  • measuring spoons
  • hot water
  • white vinegar
  • food coloring
  • spoon
  • hard-boiled eggs
  • paper towels
  • warm water
  • vegetable oil

Step 1. 

In a glass bowl mix one cup of hot water, one teaspoon of white vinegar, and 5-10 drops of food coloring. The dye in this bowl will be the base color of your egg, so we recommend using a lighter shade of dye. Use a spoon to place a hard-boiled egg into each bowl, making sure the egg is completely submerged in the liquid. Let the egg sit in the dye for just one minute. Remove and place the colored egg on a paper towel to dry. The dyed Easter eggs will need to be completely dry before you dip them again.

Step 2.

While the dyed eggs dry, prepare the oil mixture that will give your eggs a marbled look. Since the oil mixture adds a second color to the dyed egg, it will need to be quite a bit more saturated. In a new bowl mix approximately 20 drops of food coloring with one cup of warm water. Add one tablespoon of vegetable oil and use a spoon to gently mix.

Step 3.

When the eggs are dry, use a spoon to add one colored egg to the vegetable oil mix. Gently roll the egg around in the dye bath and remove it when you notice a marbleized Easter egg effect. Keep in mind that if you leave the egg in the mixture too long, it will turn a solid color.

Step 4.

After removing the egg, lightly blot excess water and oil from the egg using a paper towel and let dry completely before displaying. For a touch of shine, rub the marble-looking Easter eggs with oil.
