Try this clever technique; wrap eggs tightly in cheesecloth and then color as
usual with a dark egg dye. You'll be amazed at the intricate and beautiful designs
the cheesecloth leaves behind.
- Dark egg dye
- You will need one package of cheesecloth, which can be purchased either
at a grocery store or craft store. Cut a square big enough so that the whole
piece can be twist-tied together, completely encasing the egg. Make sure to
pull the cloth tight enough so that the weave opens up to make a distinct pattern.
- Then using either commercial or homemade dye, color the egg for just a few
minutes, remove and dry on paper towels.
- Wait until egg is completely dry to unwrap.
Darker dyes show up the best.
