Tear off a sheet of aluminum foil a bit larger than the paper towel. Place it
on a protected work surface. Place one paper towel on top. Put 8 to 10 drops of
food coloring (one or more colors) in the center of the paper towel. Allow a few
minutes for the color to spread about six inches in diameter.
Place a damp, but not too wet, egg on its side in the center of the paper towel.
Starting at the bottom of the egg, very gently press foil around egg, working your
fingers toward the top until egg is completely wrapped. Carefully peel back the
foil and paper towel together. Let dry.
The effects will vary according to colors used and the folds in the foil. Once
the paper towel is saturated, you can use dry eggs. If you are careful, you can
do at least 6 eggs with one set of materials.
