You can use either hard-boiled eggs or empty intact eggshells.
Draw lines and images on the egg using crayons or oil pastels. Use regular crayons, not the washable type.
a.) White crayon - white crayon is popularly used for doing crayon resist art. The seemingly invisible white outlines drawn on a white surface such as paper or eggs are later "magically" revealed when the surface is dyed or painted over with colors.
The eggs can be colored using any of the three methods:
Method 1: Dye the egg - make an egg dye by mixing ¾ cup warm water, 1 tablespoon white vinegar and 10 drops food coloring. Submerge the egg in the dye for at least 5 minutes.
A blown-out egg will float naturally. To remedy this, fill the egg with the dye before fully submerging it into the dye bath. You can also hold down the egg until the dye fills it entirely.
Method 2: Paint the egg - mix ¼ cup warm water, ½ teaspoon white vinegar and 6-10 drops of food coloring. Make several colors of this mixture.
Paint the egg using the colored mixtures—you can paint the entire egg with just one color or use multiple colors like I did. Just like in Method 1, the crayon lines will resist the colors.
