Easter egg dyeing with natural way

step 1
Boil white eggs, placing them in a large saucepan and cover them with cold water. When they boil, turn off the heat, cover them and let them for 10 minutes. Drain the eggs and let them cool.

step 2
Wipe the outside of boiled eggs with white vinegar. This will help the egg to absorb the color.

step 3
Dip eggs in the coloring liquid (see below for instructions and ideas for creating natural color). For more discreetly colored eggs, keep the eggs submerged for 2-10 minutes. For a more vivid shade, soak the eggs from one day to another.

step 4
Remove eggs from the colored liquid when they have reached the desired level. Let them dry completely before removing stickers or tapes that you might have added.

step 5

The eggs that are dyed with natural colors have a matte finish than artificially dyed eggs. If you want to create more shiny eggs, use a cloth to brush lightly with vetegal oil or mineral oil the outside of the egg.
