How to Make Marblised Easter Eggs

What you'll need

Eggs (Use our guide for how to blow out your eggs below).
Food colouring 
Olive oil
A few small bowls
Shallow bowl or dish
Paper towels 
Wooden skewer

How to blow out an egg

Use a pin or needle to poke a hole in both ends of an egg.

Hold the egg over a bowl and blow into one of the holes. If you’re struggling to get the egg white and yolk out, you can use a wooden skewer to make the hole a little bit bigger.

When the egg is empty be sure to give it a rinse (gently!).


How to marble your eggs

Add water to a small bowl (enough to submerge your egg), add two tablespoons on vinegar and a few drops of food colouring.

Add your egg to the bowl carefully roll to coat it in the dye.

In a shallow dish or bowl, prepare your second dye. You only need about ½ inch of liquid for this step.

Add a tablespoon of olive oil and run a skewer or folk through the liquid. Place your egg in the dish and roll around to create a fun marbled pattern.

Remove the egg and gently pat dry with a paper towel and leave to dry.

Be sure the egg is completely dry before decorating!
