Oil and Water Dyed Easter Eggs
How do you dye Easter eggs with food coloring and oil?
1. Place about 1/3 cup of water into each bowl. Depending on the size of your bowls, you’ll want enough water for about two-thirds of the egg to be covered.
2. Add 6-8 drops of food coloring to each bowl and mix.
3. Add one Tablespoon of oil into each bowl.
4. Place one egg into each bowl. With a spoon, spoon the water/oil mixture over the egg and let sit for about 10 minutes. Then roll the egg so it turns over and let sit for another 5-10 minutes.
5. Take out and lay on paper towels. Let sit for a few minutes, then wipe off each egg with additional paper towels.
