Designing Easter eggs – marbling effect
Try adding the dyeing ingredients to the pot without stirring, this will give a wild and unique ‘marble’ pattern. As the ingredients cover the eggs, the different colours will touch the egg and leave a pretty marbled pattern.
Painting Easter eggs – lines and geometric shapes
If you prefer a bit more texture, you can use rubber bands, washi tape, or hot glue. Try wrapping rubber bands around the egg before it is coloured. This creates fine lines that add contrast to the finished egg. Or use a hot glue gun to paint lines or even patterns on the uncoloured egg that will stay as uncoloured lines. You can even mask geometric shapes with washi tape before colouring the egg.
