    I tried a easter egg recipe from the chicken chick on Facebook and the eggs came out great. You take 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 tablespoon white vinegar, 15-20 drops of different food dye colors or Wilton's icing gel, shallow bowl and add warm water. Mix all together then take hard boiled egg and use your fingers and roll the egg in the bowl to the desired effect then either wipe dry with a paper towel or let sit for a few minutes then wipe dry

    That's a really pretty marbling effect.
