Crepe Paper Dye

A unique way of decorating eggs.
What You Need:
- crepe paper (darker colors seem to work better)
- containers to dip eggs in
- boiled eggs
- hot water
What You Do:
- In containers, put in pieces of crepe paper (darker colors seem to work better).
Look for the crepe paper which "bleeds when wet". You might instead substitute art tissue. Again, look for the colors that "bleed when wet".
- Add hot water and let sit. If you let it sit over night, colors get darker. I just left the crepe paper
in the bottom of the container. All the dye will leak out.
- Students color boiled eggs with crayons (resist). Bright colors such as yellow and pink show up nicely.
- After coloring and making designs or pictures on with crayons eggs, (when water is cool) dip the eggs into the dye containers and leave for a few minutes.
- You can get smaller containers and do half of the egg one color and the other half another color or you can double dip them. The longer
you leave them in, the deeper the color will be.
- Let them dry.
