How to Decorate Easter Eggs Ukrainian Style!comments (5) March 26th, 2013
Ok, here is try #2. I'm repeating the steps outlined above to draw my guidelines. While I was working on the first egg, I realized that I was being a little too ambitious with the number of lines I started with. So to simplify, I'm going to start with two intersecting lines.
Everything that you draw on the egg before dipping it into the first color will be white.
When you're finished drawing everything that you want to be white, dip your egg in the lightest color in your palette. (As you go, plan your design light to dark. My colors are yellow, pink, light blue, red, light green, and royal blue.)
Use a spoon to lower the egg into the dye. If the egg is not completely submerged in dye, roll it around gently with the spoon to cover the entire egg with dye. The first couple of colors don't require a lot of time in the dye, but as you go, you might have to leave the egg in for 5 to 15 minutes to get the new color to overtake the previous one.
Put the egg on a paper towel or tissues and pat it dry.
