How to make marble eggs for Easter with your own hands
Easter is the most wonderful holiday. An integral companion of a fragrant cake on a solemn table are colorful eggs. To exchange them or treat them is a good sign, because they are the wishes of good and prosperity.
An interesting way
Modern masters came up with a lot of the most extraordinary and very fascinating ways of how to paint eggs for the holiday. This spring the "marble" eggs for Easter became popular this spring. Such an unusual name krashenki (namely, as people call colored eggs) for their proximity to natural materials. To achieve the most unique coloring can be in a few rather informative ways. The best thing to do in the company of kids.
The first way of coloring
How to paint marble eggs on Easter with the help of purchased paint, will tell the experience of a young naturalist. Also, recommendations on this matter can be seen on the bag of paint. First of all, it is necessary to determine the number of eggs required, because it will be possible to calculate the required amount of dye. It is better to choose for painting a few optimally natural marble colors. Then krashenki can be decomposed "kaleidoscope" around the cake.
To get the "marble" eggs for Easter, you will also have to stock up on a good piece of gauze, a few spoons of rice, selected onion husks, scissors and threads.
The first thing is to cut a clean gauze with the necessary number of squares (15x15 cm), so each marble miracle will be awarded with attention.
To marble blotches turned out as reliable as possible, it is necessary to cut onion husks finely. The optimal pieces will be not more than a square centimeter. And put it will be more convenient.
To "marble" eggs for Easter shine, like a real pebble, you need to take care of rice and husk. In a bowl with a peel it is necessary to pour a little water, with rice to do the same fork. Such manipulations will help small particles of cereals to stick to the shell and effectively print on it during cooking.
Collapsed in rice and husks, the egg must be carefully wrapped in a layer of gauze, tightly tie the tail of the material and cut it with scissors. A close fit will provide the strongest contact of rice, husk and shell. Coloring in this way will achieve natural overflow and multilayered marble.
Next, gauze knots should be placed in a deep pan (you can use a scoop if you plan to create a small amount of "marble eggs" for Easter) and cook for about 40 minutes, so that all items are finished and painted with the help of a peel.
The third stage
Now you can safely take up the color. To raise the powder is strictly according to the manufacturer's recommendations, in order to get a quality solution as a result. Dish (glasses or mugs) should be placed as tightly as possible to each other in order to optimize the coloring process. If the manufacturer requires the powder to be dissolved in hot water, the condition must be met, but before dipping the eggs, allow the dye to cool.
The next stage will be the final coloring of the items - convolutions must be lowered into the solvent and wait about three to five minutes for each egg. Next gauze lumps are removed, freed from tinsel and rinsed under a stream of cold water.
You can make the same "marble" eggs for Easter with greenery. Color krashenki turns more saturated and deep. For this version, you will need all the same inventory as in the previous board, but the dyes need to be replaced with a proven green. The disadvantage of this variant of obtaining "marble" eggs is the scarcity of flowers, but, on the other hand, they can be beaten by a monotonous decoration of the celebration. Green napkins and glasses perfectly balance the festive table.
The process of creating "marble" eggs
Pre-moistened eggs must be generously rolled in a chopped onion husk and wrapped in cheesecloth. To tighten gauze rags it is necessary carefully that the zelenka has evenly laid down on a shell.
Then comes the process of cooking. To eggs do not break the pattern and do not burst at the most inopportune moment, it is worth adding to the boiling water a tablespoon of quality salt. After this, you can safely pour in a super-agent - zelenok. For a dozen Easter eggs, one bottle is enough, but still it is worth the dose.
To protect yourself from getting greens on your hands, you need to protect yourself with good rubber gloves, the pan after painting will be easily washed. But the hands can "green" for more than one day.
Brew in green eggs should be 10 minutes after boiling, after which you need to get the bundles and untie it. The finer the grind or the husk is cut, the brighter and more pronounced the marble pattern will be.
A completely safe way
Many inquisitive mothers refuse to paint "marble" eggs for Easter with colors, green is also included in this list of harmful substances. To please the kids with such interesting krashenkami and do not harm their stomach, it is worth remembering the grandmother's recipe. For this, only eggs already cooked, a lot of husks and cotton fabric will be needed. How to make such products? To obtain a marble overflow, it is necessary to moisten the eggs with water and cover with husk and wrap several times with a cloth. The more folds and folds of the fabric, the more believable will be the "marble".
On the same basis, one can also color the eggs in speckles. Instead of the husks, it is necessary to lay the prepared eggs with rice and tightly wrap the gauze. Cook them about 45 minutes. After it is worth pulling bundles and rinse under a stream of cool water.
How to get the "marble" eggs for Easter, photos of which are presented in the article, we have already described. I would like to dwell on one important point. The main nuance of noble "marble" items is the addition of vegetable oil to the saturated dye itself. Pour oil into the dye, it is necessary to stir the mixture with smooth movements, then dip the egg into it. The oil trace will spread on the shell with smaller spots. After drying, the egg must be dipped in a different color. So eggs made in "marble" technique, will acquire an extraordinary ebb.
Many craftsmen advise how to paint eggs for Easter with their own hands. "Marble" and eggs in peas - the most touching and original products. We considered the first version of the creation. And how to make the second pattern? To create eggs in peas, you will need special stickers based on foil or double-sided scotch tape. Carefully washed eggs should be pasted with such circles and dipped in concentrated dye for a couple of minutes. Next, you need to dry the shell and then remove the stickers (scotch tape). That's all, the products are ready.
