Oil and Water Marbled Eggs | My Baba

Out of all the egg dying technique out there, I have actually mastered the simple egg dye. It took a few years of tweaking, but I am now pretty good at it. This year we have taken that simple idea and have added an extra element to it to create these beautiful oil and water marbled eggs.

Make sure you follow my Easter boardEaster board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make these oil and water marbled eggs you will need:

  • Food colouring
  • Vinegar
  • Oil
  • Drying rack
  • Cups
  • Eggs
  • Water

Oil and water marbled eggs

To make up the initial egg dye you will need to make up a cup with a mix of water, food colouring, and vinegar. Place your egg in this wash and leave it for a few minutes. The longer you leave it in, the stronger the colour will be.

Take the egg out and leave it to dry on a drying rack.

While you are waiting for them to dry make up a second dye wash. This time it will need to be made up off water, food colouring, and oil. Give it a quick mix just before you add the eggs.

When you dip the eggs for a second time you need to dunk them rather than submerge them. Dunk them a few times, until you are happy with the second coating, then leave them to dry again.

This particular way of dying eggs is pretty simple. If you have really little ones joining in then I highly recommend hard boiling the eggs before you start.
