Hard Boiled Eggs
Food Coloring(not gel)
Place eggs into cups or containers that will allow them to sit upright. Add enough warm water to cover about a quarter of the egg. Add enough food coloring for the color to show darkly in the water. Let sit 10 minutes and then add enough water so that the eggs are now half covered. Let sit for another 10 minutes and cover up to the 3/4 mark. Sit for another 10 minutes and cover completely. After 5 minutes of total immersion you can remove to dry.
*Keep in mind that 40 additional minutes in warm water may cook the egg yolk a bit more.
|Get some cups to put your eggs in and fill them up 1/4 of the way up the egg|
|Take a minute for an assistant pose :)|
|Add food coloring carefully to the water so that it is dark enough to show through the water|
|After 10 minutes add water up to the 1/2 mark on your egg (this did cause my pink egg to fall)|
|Be excited about the process|
|After 10 additional minutes add water up to the 3/4 line on the eggs|
|After 10 minutes cover completely|
|Remove to dry|
|Be happy about how pretty your eggs look|
|You can see some separation lines on a few but the ombre' effect was not there for me, at least they are still pretty|
