dying Easter eggs? Has anybody tried this? I'm worried the gel will clump in the water.

Sorry if this is the wrong forum. Wasn't sure where to ask, but I know a lot of people on here use Americolor!

I have never used it in eggs before....but when we dye eggs we always use vinegar and food colouring as it makes for richer colours faster as the vinegar helps to etch the eggs or something like that. I know you can use the food colouring as a paint. It never hurts to try good luck.

I just thought of this now, if you do not want the colour all over the egg and you would like a pattern on it, draw on it with a crayon (or a candle or something waxy) and then that way the pattern will be on the egg when it is finished
