How to paint eggs step by step
- After checking the raw eggs to make sure they are clean and not cracked, wash them well (this helps the dye adhere better).
- Then follow your favorite hard-boiled egg recipe to make the eggs for tincture.
- In individual cups, mix the dye, starting with 3 to 4 drops of liquid food coloring and 2 tablespoons of vinegar.
- Then add room temperature water to each cup so that it is no more than half.
- Once the eggs have cooled, soak them in the dye baths at room temperature.
- Simply put on a pair of disposable gloves so you can use your hands.
- Leave the eggs in the dye bath for at least 5 minutes, then take each egg out of the dye bath using plastic gloves.
- Shake lightly to remove droplets before placing it gently on a rack to cool use a baking sheet lined with absorbent paper.
- When the surface appears dry, use your gloved fingers to flip each egg.
- When the eggs appear dry all around, run the entire pan in the refrigerator for a few hours to prevent the dye from fading or transferring.
- When the colored eggs are completely dry, you can expose them without worrying the color will adhere perfectly to the eggs.
- You should refrigerate the eggs after two hours and eat them within a week of boiling.
