Have you started thinking about dyeing Easter eggs yet? I love dyeing eggs, but I always feel bad when we have to eat or throw away the real things. These dyed wooden eggs will add color to my Easter table, and I can keep them around for years to come!
FolkArt UltraDye is one of the products I have been itching to try ever since Creativation. The colors are so saturated and beautiful, and the dye works on a variety of surfaces.
I found a package of wooden eggs at Target, but when I opened the package I noticed that the eggs seemed to have some kind of finish or sealant on them. I prepped the eggs by sanding them all over. I think if I had been working with actual raw wood eggs, the dye would have worked even better.
I used a foam brush to apply the dye to the eggs. The dye has a slightly more gel-like texture than other dyes, so it stays where you paint it without runs or drips.
I followed the directions on the package and applied a few coats of the dye. You can see that I didn’t do a great sanding job on the blue egg in the top left corner of this photo. The dye looks uneven because the surface beneath it was uneven. Other than that, I am happy with how these eggs turned out. They will be a bright, colorful addition to my Easter decorations for years to come!
