The makebright crew was busy today…
trying new techniques for egg dying, including using elastic bands, hand lotion, and scotch tape as dye masks, as well as…
some of the old favourites of toothpick painting that give a more subtle result.
The speckled egg is very painstaking, hence only one of them.
You can get some really vibrant colours with our secret mix of water+dye+vinegar (rats! there’s the secret) plus a long soak.
A couple of hours later: eggs! as far as the eye can…
I was really happy with the tape mask, especially where the dye leaked under the tape.
