Marbleized Egg Project from Martha Stewart’s Handmade Holiday Crafts
Eggs and dyes are the two central elements of Easter crafts.
Once you’ve dyed and decorated eggs, the possibilities are endless! You can arrange them in woven baskets, use them in centerpieces and displays, and hide them for Easter egg hunts. They can even be blown rather than hard-boiled to be saved and used as ornaments.
If you can stand to part with them, we guess you can eat them too!
So when we’re getting ready to decorate our eggs, we turn to the master, Martha Stewart. Decorating eggs perfectly isn’t hard with Martha’s tips.
Martha Stewart’s Handmade Holiday Crafts offers several techniques for decorating Easter eggs. From the basics to masked designs to botanical patterned-eggs and heat-embossed eggs, this book will help you take your egg game from ordinary to extraordinary.
To celebrate the start of spring, we’re sharing perhaps our favorite of all the egg-dyeing techniques—marbleizing. Creating the abstract, intricate swirls of color—earthy brown twisting over baby blue, soft beige afloat on buttery yellow—is easier than it looks; the trick is adding oil to the dye.
Every egg you decorate this way will be one of a kind, and all are sure to be enchanting
