Mix food dye with 1 cup of shaving cream to make swirls etc. Roll egg into shaving cream and let sit for about an hour. Wash under room temperature water. Egg with have a varying degree of color shading with swirls. I would not recommend eating these eggs because of the chemicals from the shaving cream.
I am always amazed at how creative someone can decorate Easter eggs! These beauties were all dyes to start with of the artists favorite color ‘purple’. This gave a base color to work with. The artist used the same dye in different amounts of dye to bring out different shades of the color. Some went on even further to be painted. You can see glitter and sequins being used here. But what else could be used to decorate eggs. This would be a perfect time to bring out the little craft left overs and see just how creative you can be. If you are using solvents on these it would be best not to eat them if you are making on hard boiled eggs for health safety.
10 hard boiled eggs
1 tsp vinegar for each color you are using
½ cup mayonnaise or Miracle Whip or half of each (I use Miracle Whip)
Remove the shells from the hard boiled eggs and slice each egg in half.
Remove the yolks from the egg halves and place in a bowl. Set the yolks aside.
Get enough glasses or mugs for the number of colors you want to use. Fill the mugs or glasses ⅔ of the way full with cold water.
Add 3 drops of desired food coloring along with 1 tsp vinegar to each mug or cup.
Place egg whites in the mugs and allow to sit in the food coloring until desired color is reached. I could fit 3 egg whites in each of my mugs at a time.
Remove whites from dye and drain on a plate lined with a couple of paper towels.
Take the reserved yolks and mash them with a fork. Then mix in the ½ cup mayonnaise with the mashed yolk.
Pipe or spoon the yolk mix into the colored egg whites. Makes 20 deviled egg halves.

Bake in a cupcake tin at 325 for 30 minutes. Eggs will have a “creamier” texture on the inside and the shell can obtain slight browning where the egg hits the edges o the cupcake pan. This idea is great to prepare eggs to color or when you need many and already are using all of your burners. This is a great idea also to prepare what you need for few days to have for that extra protein for a lunch. When you remove them from the oven immediately submerge them into an ice bath, which will allow for easy peeling when you are ready to do so.
