Did you know you could dye Easter eggs with Rit Dye? And, by using different techniques you can create all different textured looks! Rit Dye is nontoxic but we recommend that you use these eggs for decorative purposes only.
To get started, make your dye baths. Put one cut of boiling water, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 3-6 teaspoons of whatever dye colors you want in a dish.
You can put the egg directly into this dye bath. The longer you leave it in, the more vibrant the color will be.
Draw a design onto your egg with hot glue and allow it to dry. Put the egg in the dye bath. When you take it out, either leave the glue on the egg for a textured look, or take it off to reveal undyed sections of egg. We found that the easiest way to take the glue off was by putting it in hot water to make the glue sticky again.
You can also draw a design on the egg with regular washable glue. Wait for it to dry. Dye your egg. Then rub the glue off in water.
To make an Ombre egg, follow the directions in our Ombre Dip Dye Technique video.
