Natural Dye Tutorial (results in the eggs pictured above)
1. I chopped up the ingredients as best I could
(the beets went into the blender) and
started cooking them ahead of time. In each
pot, I put about three spoons of vinegar to
help the color stick to the eggs better.
2. I hollowed out the eggs (tedious, but see
page 7 if you’re interested) and cut the
pantyhose into sections a few inches long. I
tied off one side and placed the egg and
some of the leaves and flowers inside (with
flowers or leaves pressed up to the egg),
pulled the pantyhose really tight and tied off
the other side to make little packets.
3. Once I had all the eggs prepared and the
ingredients had been cooking for a while, I
did my best to fill all of the eggs with water
so they would not float so much when I put
them in the pots, for better coverage. As the
water filling process took much longer than I
guessed it would some of the eggs were in
the pots for much longer than the others.
That is OK, now I have some very dark eggs
and some very light eggs.
4. When everything was done cooking I flipped
over the egg carton and put toothpicks in the
bottom to make a handy little drying rack.
