Square-Patterned Eggs

Introduction

Bright colors and geometric designs make modern-looking eggs. Here, we've displayed a trio of square-patterned eggs in a graceful vintage wirework holder.

To create the pattern, pieces of electrical tape are shifted slightly between two dips in dye. For chicken eggs, we used 1/2-inch squares; for goose eggs, slightly larger squares as well as rectangles. When layering hues, start with the paler one and move on to the darker one.
