Make dazzling, colourful Easter eggs! You can use food colouring to dye drained eggs, and hard-boiled eggs that you will serve with your Easter meal. We used the tie-dye technique to create beautifully variegated Easter eggs. Tip! The paper towel you use to dye the eggs will also end up looking lovely - you can use it for another Easter craft, like cutting out pretty feathers.
Eggs in every colour of the rainbow are an Easter essential! You can use food colouring to dye drained eggs, and hard-boiled eggs that you will serve with your Easter meal. Pick a few flowers and leaves and use egg dye to create pretty plant designs on your eggs. We used ivy and ferns. You can also try dipping the egg in a series of different dyes, or combine different colours in a single cup for a slightly more muddled result.
Shimmering metal eggs bring a sense of luxury to the Easter table. METHOD: Fill a glass with warm water and drop in the paint tubes. Let them soak in the warm water until the paint liquefies. Cut the paint tubes apart with a pair of scissors. Put on the accompanying gloves and snip off the tops of the tubes. Take the warm eggs from the pot and dry them off. To begin with, drip about 15 drops of the lightest colour into the palm of your hand (with gloves on). Carefully rotate the egg in the paint. Let the egg dry for a moment, but not completely; it should feel sticky. Wrap metal foil around the egg and press gently so that it sticks. Pull off the foil. The metal is now stuck to the sticky paint. HAVE AT HOME: Warm freshly hard-boiled eggs, scissors, protective plastic, heat-tolerant glass.
For painting eggs that will later be eaten, we recommend using food-grade paints and pens and our special egg paints. This is because these products are designed to come into contact with food. If you are just decorating eggshells for decoration, you can take your pick of any Panduro pens and paints. If you are going to be painting with children, we recommend choosing items from our Kids & Junior selection, as these are specially designed to be child-safe.
