Egg Marbleizing | CMSMatHome


Here’s an easy one for a (lazy?) Saturday with #CMSMatHome!

Prepare some cups, 1 tablespoon of each vinegar, cooking oil, and food coloring, some hardboiled eggs, and water.

Combine food coloring, oil, and vinegar, and add enough water to cover an egg. Swirl the liquid around with a spoon, then lower an egg into it. Quickly remove the egg and pat it dry with a paper towel.

Additional Ideas

Repeat this process using different colors and same eggs.

Leave a bit of oil on the egg and softly wipe it to give the egg a varnished look.

Draw a design on your egg with crayon before dipping it into the food coloring.

Try using eggs that have been blown out, rather than hardboiled.
