Marble-like Easter Eggs


Ingredients You'll Need

Bowl of Vinegar
Shallow pan
Shaving cream or whipped cream
Food coloring
Bamboo skewers
Rubber gloves
Hard-boiled eggs
Paper towels
Bowl of water


Directions

Fill a shallow baking sheet with a thick layer of shaving cream; we used a plain drugstore shaving cream. Spray the shaving cream so that it covers the bottom of a pan with a layer that is about an inch thick. Generously place drops of food coloring on top of the shaving cream; we used a two-color combination for each set of eggs. You can use one color combination for the whole pan, or divide the pan of shaving cream into halves or quarters to create more color combinations. When most of the surface is covered with food coloring, drag a bamboo skewer across the top of the shaving cream to swirl and marble the colors.

When the colored shaving cream is ready, put on a pair of rubber gloves to protect your hands from the dye. Pick up a hard-boiled egg and set it gently on the surface of the shaving cream. Slowly roll the egg over the surface, so that the colored shaving cream completely coats the egg's shell. Place the egg on a paper towel and let dry for 20 minutes—don't wipe off any of the shaving cream until the egg has completely dried. Repeat this process with as many hard-boiled eggs as you'd like to color, reusing the colored shaving cream mixture.

To clean the dried egg, carefull dip each egg into a bowl of water. The water will remove the excess shaving cream, while leaving the colored design on the egg's shell. Pat each egg dry with a paper towel, but be careful not to rub or wipe the surface of the egg, as this might smear or remove the dye from the shell. When each egg has been cleaned and dried, add the eggs to a colorful display. Eggs decorated with shaving cream are not edible, but eggs made with whipped cream are safe to eat as long as they are stored in the refrigerator.
