All right, I admit I feel a bit foolish asking about something so basic when most of you are so crafty, but I’ve never done Easter eggs before as I didn’t grow up with them and Ru hasn’t been old enough to be interested until this year. I’d like to colour some eggs with her, using natural dyes: you know, the sort of thing where you use onion skins for yellow and beets for red etc.? I know I’ve seen this around on the internet but I never made a note of the websites. Could anyone point me to some good links/tutorials, or, if it’s fairly simple, just describe the process here?
Also, is there a way to use natural dyes/materials and get more than a simple solid-coloured egg? I’d like to do a few with marbled effects too, if that’s possible. I don’t want to attempt anything too adventurous for the first time, but I thought if we could do some solid colours and some marbled ones that would be plenty, and fun….
Thanks in advance!
