Psychedelic Easter Eggs

To make the coolest eggs around, all you need is food-coloring. Simply hold your egg in one hand and drip 1 drop of food-color onto your egg. Next, spin and twirl the egg in between your fingers as the drop of food color swirls and moves around the egg, then do the same thing with another color over that one.


For an even more far-out version: Do the same thing, except put one drop each of 2 or 3 different colors on the egg at the same time amd swirl. These colors should be in the same family, as they will mix and blend together as you twirl the egg. But my top favorite way, is to put a drop of food coloring on the egg, then "Blow" the drop with just my breath, a straw or a blow dryer. This makes a great "wind blown" design. Follow with color after color, letting the colors dry between each application. (yellow and red work well together, as do yellow, green and blue) Needless to say, you'll probably want to buy a 10 pack of rubber gloves from the dollar store before you start this project!

Dry your colored eggs in an old ice-cube tray, wire baking rack (with a plate unter it), on bubble-wrap, or on the upturned lids of bottles. Film containers and old prescription bottles and lids also work extremely well. It also looks cool to outline some of your swirls with a black permanent marker.

Sounds pretty! One thing I would suggest is to wear gloves or put your hand in a plastic baggie first--food coloring will stay with you a while!

For Watermelon eggs: Buy brown eggs and take a red grease pencil and draw vertical lines. Voila!
