Step 1: Prepare egg dye
Prepare the egg dye according to the package, or make your own using natural food colorings. If you plan to eat the eggs, make sure to use food-grade dyes.
Step 2: Add vegetable oil
Add a teaspoon of vegetable oil to each container of dye.
If you want to dye some eggs normally or give them a base color before marbling, do that first. Once the oil is in the dye, you can't go back!
Step 3: Dip quickly
Using a spoon or the dipper that comes with a kit, lower the egg completely into the dye and remove it quickly. Because oil and water don't mix, you'll get color on some parts of the egg, and none on others, creating a marbled effect. Keep dipping to get a brighter color.
Step 4: Dry eggs on paper towel
Lightly pat the just-dipped eggs with a paper towel, or the color may become muddy. If you want to dip them in another color, wait until they're completely dry first.
Experiment by adding a bit more oil to the dyes; different amounts create different amounts of marbling.
Step 5: Add some shine
Moisten a paper towel with vegetable oil and lightly wipe down the finished eggs with it to add a nice shine.
Step 6: Refrigerate
Refrigerate your eggs until you're ready to display them and wow everyone with your masterpiece!
