Introduction

Making egg dye with food coloring is very easy and only requires a few ingredients. You will need:
-Food coloring
-White vinegar
-Water
-A small bowl or cup
-A spoon
To make your egg dye, mix together 1/2 teaspoon of white vinegar with 2 drops of food coloring. Add 1/2 cup of water and stir. Place your egg into the dye and let it sit for about 5 minutes. Remove the egg and enjoy your beautiful creation!

What You’ll Need

-A small cup or bowl
-1 teaspoon white vinegar
-Food coloring
-1 hard-boiled egg

Instructions
1. Start by adding 1 teaspoon of white vinegar to a small cup or bowl. You can use more or less vinegar depending on how strong you want the color to be.
2. Add drops of food coloring to the cup or bowl until you reach your desired shade. Be sure to mix well so the color is evenly distributed.
3. Place your hard boiled egg into the cup or bowl and let it sit for about 5 minutes, or until it reaches your desired shade of color.
4. When finished, remove the egg from the dye and allow it to dry on a paper towel.

Step One: Separate the Egg Whites and Yolks

To get started, you will need to separate the egg whites and yolks. You can do this by gently cracking the egg in half and then using a spoon to scoop out the yolk. Once the yolk is removed, place it in a small bowl and set it aside.

Step Two: Boil the Egg Whites

The first step in this process is to boil the egg whites. You will need to do this in order to make sure that the eggs are properly cooked and that the yolks do not become too hard. You can either use a stovetop or an electric egg cooker for this step. If you are using a stovetop, you will need to bring a pot of water to a boil and then carefully place the egg whites into the water. Cook them for about three minutes or until they are firm.

Step Three: Add the Food Coloring

Now it’s time to add the food coloring. Depending on how intense you want the colors to be, you’ll need to add more or less food coloring. For example, if you’re using liquid food coloring, you’ll need to add about 20 drops for every cup of water. If you’re using gel food coloring, you’ll need to add about 1/4 teaspoon for every cup of water.

Step Four: Dye the Eggs

Now that you have your colors all set up, it’s time to start dying some eggs! Begin by placing an egg into the container with the lightest color dye first. You can leave the eggs in the dye for as little or as long as you’d like, but we suggest starting with 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, use a slotted spoon to remove the egg from the dye and place it onto a paper towel to dry. Repeat this process with each different color dye, making sure to dry each egg completely before moving on to the next color.

Step Five: Remove the Eggs from the Dye

Once the eggs have reached the desired color, remove them from the dye using a slotted spoon and place them in a bowl of cool water. Allow the eggs to sit in the water for a few minutes to cool completely.

Step Six: Rinse the Eggs

Once you’ve reached the desired color, carefully remove the eggs from the dye and rinse them in cold water. If necessary, you can use a small paintbrush to remove any residual dye from the surface of the egg. Allow the eggs to dry completely before handling or storing.

Step Seven: Dry the Eggs

Dry the eggs with a clean cloth or paper towels. You can also let them air dry for about 15 minutes. If using stickers, make sure they are completely dry before adding them to the egg.

Conclusion

To make your own egg dye, you will need:
-1/2 teaspoon white vinegar
-1/2 cup boiling water
-Food coloring
-A small bowl or jar for each color

Directions:
1) Add the vinegar and boiling water to the bowl or jar.
2) Add food coloring, one drop at a time, until you achieve the desired color. (For example, for a light pink color, you would add about 5 drops of red food coloring.)
3) Submerge the egg in the dye and allow it to sit for about 5 minutes. To achieve a darker color, you can leave the egg in the dye for longer.
4) Remove the egg from the dye and allow it to dry on a paper towel.
