- Food coloring
- Coffee filters
- Twist ties
- Water spray bottle
Place each egg in a coffee filter.
Twist tie them closed. Or, you could use rubber bands.
Place drops of food coloring directly on the coffee filters. Be sure to leave some white spaces as well. Put as many or as few drops on as you would like.
You can use all one color or different colors.Wear gloves if you don't want your fingers getting stained.
Gently spray each dot with the water bottle. The food coloring will spread and mix with the other colors.
Gently squeeze the water with light pressure out of the coffee filters. (If there is too much water.) You can do this by grasping the egg in your hand and applying gentle pressure without enough strength to crack the egg shells.
Place on a sheet pan, lined with paper towels, to dry overnight. Keep in mind, the food coloring could soak through the paper towels and get onto the baking pan below.
