    Instructions:

    • Tear apart the paper towels into small sections and place a cool, dry egg in the middle.
    • Wrap the paper towel up and around the egg so it's completely covered. Twist the top of the paper towel so it's tight against the egg and secure it with a tiny hair elastic or a twist tie.
    • Wearing rubber gloves to gently squeeze drops of food coloring directly onto the paper towel wrapped egg (3 or 4 drops at a time), leaving some white space between each color. Repeat until there are large food coloring dots around the whole egg.
    • Take your spray bottle of water and squirt a small amount of water into the middle of each of the food coloring drops. Keep spraying until the colors bleed and there is no more white space. The less water you spray, the brighter the colors on the egg will be.
    • Gently squeeze the wet paper towel wrapped egg over the sink to drain any excess water. Even if there's no extra water, gently squeeze the egg to make sure the color on the paper towel transfers to the egg.
    • Set the eggs in a glass dish or on a baking sheet and we suggest that use a table fan at the eggs and allow them to dry for 3-4 hours. (Because without a table fan, it takes overnight to dry)
    • When the paper towels are completely dry, remove the elastics and unwrap each egg.
    • Place the eggs in an egg carton If you need to refrigerate it.
