Two-Toned Banded Easter Eggs: Dip eggs without rubber bands in one color dye. Allow eggs to dry. Wrap eggs with rubber bands and continue as directed, using a second color of dye. For best results, use a lighter color of dye, such as yellow or pink for the first dye. Use a darker color, such as medium blue or green for the second color of dye.
Egg Dyeing Tips:
• Line work surface with layers of newspaper before dyeing eggs.
• Gather all equipment including small bowls or cups for each food color, spoons for each bowl and paper towels for spills. Bowls should be deep enough to completely submerge the egg.
• For easy clean-up, use soap and water repeatedly to remove food color from hands and most kitchen countertops. If needed, use all-purpose cleaner with bleach for countertops.
• Make an egg drying stand out of a paper towel tube cut into sections.
