Can I begin by saying that is one of the most fun crafts I've ever done!!!!! I mean, crafting by candle light? Elsa and I did one egg each yesterday. I set up a little dying station, a drying area (push pins stuck into a piece of cardboard to hold the eggs up), and a plate with a candle, a pencil and the two wax writing tool. It takes up very little space and will remain on my kitchen counter for a few weeks I think. It was surprisingly not a very messy project.
I used a brown egg, laid by one of our own girls. I am pleased with the colours and think that it held the dye even better than the white egg. We followed directions from this book and bought supplies at our local art supply store.
Please try this........................you won't regret it.
