How to do it

Part 1

Step 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.

Step 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.

Step 3

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

Step 4

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