Step 1: Prepare egg dye Prepare the egg dye according to the package, or make your own using natural food colorings. If you plan to eat the eggs, make sure to use food-grade dyes. Step 2: Add vegetable oil Add a teaspoon of vegetable oil to each container of dye. Tip If you want to dye some eggs normally or give them a base color before marbling, do that first. Once the oil is in the dye, you can't go back! Step 3: Dip quickly Using a spoon or the dipper that comes with a kit, lower the egg completely into the dye and remove it quickly. Because oil and water don't mix, you'll get color on some parts of the egg, and none on others, creating a marbled effect. Keep dipping to get a brighter color. Step 4: Dry eggs on paper towel Lightly pat the just-dipped eggs with a paper towel, or the color may become muddy. If you want to dip them in another color, wait until they're completely dry first. Tip Experiment by adding a bit more oil to the dyes; different amounts create different amounts of marbling. Step 5: Add some shine Moisten a paper towel with vegetable oil and lightly wipe down the finished eggs with it to add a nice shine. Step 6: Refrigerate Refrigerate your eggs until you're ready to display them and wow everyone with your masterpiece! Did You Know? In 2005, Belgian chocolate maker Guylian created a 27-foot, 3-inch tall, 4,299-pound edible chocolate Easter egg out of 50,000 praline chocolate bars.
