The experiment: Dyeing Easter Eggs #2

If you are here, then you’ve probably read my first part of the dyeing Easter eggs experiment, but if not, you can find it here.

Now, the first part of dying easter eggs turned out to be a complete disaster, obviously the shaving cream technique wasn’t the best for me. I really wanted it to work out, but after getting quite disappointed, I’ve decided to follow the long established ‘family’ technique, or the one which my baba has been using for ages. It’s very simple and never fails me!


The most essential thing you need is cotton. It has to be fluffy and not on pads because it need to cover the easter eggs well.

Then you put some easter egg dye drops by your choice. I made one with red, orange and yellow and one with blue, green and yellow. No need to cover the whole cotton surface.

Then you hop the easter egg in the cotton and roll it, so it get covered by the cotton from each side. Let it sit aside for a couple of minutes and then prepare for the reveal!


I’m sorry guys but I can’t be humble about these: they look gorgeous! The first one is definitely my favourite, but the rest of them are not that bad as well!


Then I rubbed them with oil to make them look shiny and put them in my Easter basket. Voila! You can even get a chocolate bunny (that’s actually more than compulsory)!
