Rubber Cement Eggs

This is a great way to produce abstract colored eggs!

Materials needed:
-egg dye
-hard boiled eggs
-rubber cement
-cups for dye
-spoons
-Paper towels
Apply rubber cement to the egg in whatever patterns you choose, and allow to dry. Then dip your egg in the dye of your choice.   Once the eggs have dried, remove the rubber cement.
Optionally, you may dye the egg a base color first, then after it has dried apply the rubber cement and dye a second color.

Marbled eggs

This creates beautiful eggs with a marbled appearance.  You will need:

-Hard boiled Eggs
-Food coloring
– Vinegar
-Cooking oil
– Mugs for the dye
– some spoons
-Paper towels
In each container, combine one tablespoon of each of oil, vinegar, and your choice of food coloring.
Add water to approximately half the cup…. adjust your food coloring to get to the shade of color you want.
Swirl the liquid with a spoon, and quickly lower and raise an egg into it. Be sure to stir each time before inserting an egg.
Pat dry with a paper towel, allow to dry and repeat with a second color.
You may repeat as many times as you wish…. or as few, there is no set way to do this
