crayon resist easter eggs


Today we dyed Easter eggs using Glob's Natural Easter Egg Coloring Kit.  The kit comes with 3 colors (yellow, purple and blue), 3 compostable mixing cups and 3 small bamboo brushes.  The dyes are made from herbs and plants, in this case, annatto, radish and cabbage.  The dyes can be mixed to make other colors as well.  We drew with a white crayon on the eggs before dyeing them, a technique called crayon resist (which happened to be one of the suggestions in the kit).  Another example of crayon resist can be found here.  Many thanks to Glob for sending us an Easter Egg kit to try out!
