    I love it! The cabbage are gorgeous, but the dark hibiscus are the stand-outs for me!

    So will you actually eat the eggs eventually?

  2. Beth says:

    Thanks, Kirsten! Yes, we’ve already started eating them, but will hide the rest for an Easter egg hunt with friends tomorrow. I think egg salad sandwiches are in order for Thursday! They won’t last until Easter Sunday at this rate.

  3. I want to grow up at your house~

    ONION SKINS. Traditional egg dye of eastern europe. Give beautiful golden orangey brown color, strong and uniform. Gotta boil onion skins, just the dry orange ones in water, many of them, kinda thick. Put eggs into the boiling liquid for not too long. i suppose you can put raw eggs in for longer just cook them in it til they are hard boild but then they may be too dark. To decorate: scratch designs on the shell with sharp object.
    another intersting dye, although not edible is.. that purple skin medication “violet somthg” or “gentian”? they come out purple with gold shine.

  10. I have fallen in love with the colors and textures that this gives the eggs. These are truly remarkable eggs! I have shared this on my blog and have a link for you blog also. Keep up the great work!

    Beautiful! I’ve been in love with making natural dyes since I read this blog: http://www.jennydean.co.uk/index.php/category/general-dye-information/

    Also, I usually dye my eggs after blowing them out (poking holes at the top and bottom). You do have to press them under the liquid, but then I can keep the eggs and have made garlands of some.

  12. Susan says:

    red onion skin makes beautiful dye for handmade paper and would *probably* work for eggs.

  13. These eggs are beautiful….great job!

  14. Lisa says:

    Does it affect the flavor of the eggs?
    Do the coffee and tea ones add caffeine to the eggs?

    • Beth says:

      I can say with some certainty that it does not affect flavor, and I can’t imagine caffeine being transferred, but then, I have limited experience in this area as of yet. 😉
