So, I'm kinda into egg dying in preparation for Easter. (Who are we kidding? Easter is the excuse. I would dye eggs every month if I could get away with it!) So I was snooping around on Pinterest for something neat to try. Thats when I stumbled upon this pin. See those crackly looking mosaic eggs? I wanted to do that. But, the link didn't lead to a how-to. I googled, and found nothing. So- I figured it out (its actually REALLY easy) And now I'm sharing with you!
You Will Need:
- Eggs, hard boiled or blown out.
- Egg dye
- Mod Podge or Elmer’s Glue
How To Make It.
- This one can’t be any simpler. Dye one egg any color you desire. Leave one egg white. Choose if you want your "background" color to be the white egg or the colored egg. In my example the "background" is white and the "foreground" is blue.
- Crush the shell of the "foreground" egg. If it is hard-boiled, remove the shell from the rest of the egg. Lay out on work table outside up, so that you can see what you are working with.
- On the "background" egg, spread a thin layer of Mod Podge/Glue in a small area.
- Using clean, dry fingers, apply pieces of the "foreground" shell to the "background" egg. Try to mingle larger and smaller pieces, and leave gaps between the pieces. Note that if you hands are wet at all, some of the dye might rub off.
- Continue doing this in small sections until the egg is covered.
- Seriously. That’s it! If you want your eggs to last for eons, consider sealing the outside to prevent dye leakage and sun Fading. This video I found has a great tutorial!
