  • Liquid food coloring

  • Paper towels

  • Spray bottle

  • White vinegar

  • Water


  1. Drip several drops of food coloring onto a section of paper towel. Place drops closer together or farther apart for a more or less saturated look, respectively.

  2. Fill a spray bottle with a mixture of water and vinegar (one teaspoon vinegar for each cup water). Lightly spray the paper towel until the food coloring spreads out slightly.

  3. Wrap paper towel around egg and secure with a rubber band. Let sit for 30 seconds, then unwrap paper towel.

  4. Test out several brands of paper towels — different patterns of perforation will create different textures on the egg surface.
