What is an Easter egg?

This tradition has been around for a very long time. In christianity, for example, Easter eggs are a symbol of the empty tomb of Jesus from which he resurrected. In addition, red eggs are a symbol of the blood Jesus shed during his crucifixion. That is why, the tradition is to paint the first egg red. Nowadays, however, people have gotten very creative with the many different ways they colour their eggs. There are many techniques you can use to dye your eggs. Some people prefer natural food dye, others get store bought egg dye. If, however, you want very rich colours, you can always use food colouring.

How to dye eggs – natural dye ingredients

What are the steps for creating these beautiful eggs?

  1. Paint your eggs black. If your paint isn’t thick enough, put 2 or 3 coats of it.
  2. Pour some of your paint on a white plate or board. The colours used in this DIY are: indigo, pink, teal, purple, gold and white.
  3. Start off with the indigo paint and use the paintbrush to make a full line of it. How exactly you are going to do it is up to you, of course.
  4. Use the sponge and dab some teal on top of the indigo. Do the same with the purple and pink. Make sure the paint is dry before you put on the next one. Then apply the gold paint in the same way.
  5. Now, get just a tiny little bit of black on your sponge and dab on top of the paint. This is going to make your galaxy look amazing.
