1. Dye your eggs and let them dry on your DIY drying rack.
2. Practice your words and phrases on a piece of scratch paper. Egg-spress yourself.
3. Calligraph your eggs, being careful not to touch the ink.
We’re using classic PAAS dye to color our eggs. It’s super simple to make and you’ll be able to dye a bunch of eggs with the same batch of dye.
Pour distilled white vinegar into your mixing jar. Then add a dye tablet and let it dissolve. Using the tool from the PAAS kit, gently place your egg in the dye. The longer it sits, the darker your color will be.
Once your egg is the color you desire, take it out of the dye and let it dry on your drying rack.
Before you ink your eggs, we highly recommend that you practice your words on scratch paper so you can get them egg-zactly right ;)
Writing on your eggs will feel different than the paper. The shell is porous and curved, so don’t fill your nib with a ton of ink, and press lightly so you can go back over your letters and make them look egg-ceptional. Too many? We think not!

They really are spEGGtacular, aren’t they?
