Tried something new this year. We colored our eggs with the shaving cream and food coloring technique.
Start by filling shallow pans with shaving cream. Not the gel kind, the foam kind. Our instructions said an inch deep but I thought that was too much. I'd go less, I think more color would get on the eggs with only about a half inch'ish deep.
Choose your color schemes. You don't want to do more than 2-4 colors together in the pan, otherwise they'll mix to much and you could end up with a pretty yucky color.
Smooth it out.
Put several drops of your chosen colors in.
Then you'll gently swirl your colors together until you like the look. We first used a toothpick and it just wasn't swirling good.
So we got a straw and it was perfect.
Put an egg in, roll it straight down the pan until it's covered.
Set them out to dry. Which they won't dry dry, as in hard dry. But you'll see the coating looks sort dryish. About 10-15 minutes.
They all have such a different look to them.
Or you can just pick it up and swirl it around too.
Take a paper towel and wipe it all off. Don't worry, the food coloring has already done it's job.
Some turned out very light. I think these were the pans that were heavy on the shaving cream.
The ones with less shaving cream were brighter.
This one looked pitted. But could be from my pricey high dollar 42 cent eggs.
But overall, they turned out pretty.
Ashlyn set up a photo op for the eggs.
We were happy with it and had fun. So we call it a success.
Even though this post is a couple weeks late, I hope you had a very nice Easter.
