    I do believe those are brighter than a white egg!
    Gorgeous!

    It was the normal dye kit, but I used more vinager and I soaked them longer then I had in the past. I've never had eggs turn out that nice!

    How much more vinager did you use? I know what I'll be doing tomorrow. [​IMG] And I dont even have kids. Does that make me crazy that I like to dye easter eggs just for fun?..and I guess just for myself.

    I used 1/2 vinager and 1/2 water. Put the vinager in first and add the color pellet. When it completely dissolves add the water and you're good to go. The longer they soak the richer the color will be.

    Beautiful. I wish my kids were young and still wanted to dye Easter eggs. I miss those days.

    I like the dark green one on the left side in the corner.
