Naturally dyed eggs

Easter is near and of course it means we will painting eggs. It is not a question that the ‘paint’ get inside the eggs too (as we have seen lot of times outside of the white part) so that eggs we will eat we paint – dye – with natural ingredients. You don’t have to go to far because probably you have everything on hand.
I won’t tell any news about the ‘how’ and about the ‘what’ I just show you this time what happened. I think between dye and dye even with the same tools it will be different because somehow every white egg behaves different and also the natural ingredients can behave differently.

But see one by one how i did and how i got these shades?

Very light blue – i put the raw egg into a bowl with water and red cabbage leaves and brought it to boil. As long as i was sure it is boiled enough i take it off of the water. I got very pastel blue but watching close you will see how beautifully different in one egg!

Brown – i used water and coffee. i put the raw egg into a bowl with water and coffee and brought it to boil. As long as i was sure it is boiled enough i take it off of the water. I got that beautiful brown. If i wanted to reach a more pastel brown, i think i would boil it with black tea or put less coffee into the water.

Dark pink – i used frozen rasberry, red tea and a whole beetroot with peel on it. i put the raw egg into a bowl with water and the ingredients and brought it to boil. As long as i was sure it is boiled enough i take it off of the water. When i took it off on some place it wanted to be srcahed ( i mean the pink) but after it dried i couldn’t get the color off. I love that it is look like this and it is not a whole pink egg.

Dark blue – i put the raw egg into a bowl with water and red cabbage leaves and brought it to boil. As long as i was sure it is boiled enough i just let the egg int he water for a whole night. This is my favorite! not to mention the water was beautiful dark blue too!

Dark yellow – i used turmeric and curry spices. i put the raw egg into a bowl with water and the ingredients and brought it to boil. As long as i was sure it is boiled enough i take it off of the water. I love in it too that the color is not unite but somewhere darker and so! Maybe i could reach a pastel color if i put less stuff into the water?! or boiled the egg first in a simple water and than put to the water with the veggies.

Dark orange – i used red onion peel and a whole carrot with peel on it. i put the raw egg into a bowl with water and the ingredients and brought it to boil. As long as i was sure it is boiled enough i take it off of the water. It is really that dark orange! However orange is not my favorite but i love how vivid color i could reach!
