Naturally Dyed Easter Egg Experiments
April 4, 2014
Natural dyes are fascinating. The dyes used for these Easter eggs, for instance, took me by surprise because the onion skins I used to make the coppery red color made for a really intense, effective dye. On the other hand, the cabbage used for the purple dye left such a light stain that I had to add a handful or two of frozen berries to kick up the intensity.
After all is said and done, I'll probably just dye red eggs next year because the pigment from the onion skins (both red and yellow) is so rich and satisfying that the rest don't really compare. For a tutorial on dying your eggs these three natural dye colors, check out my post for the Evermine Blog.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend, rain or shine.
