Try This DIY Easter Egg Swirl Effect With Shaving Cream and Dye
I guess I'm the only one who has NEVER heard of this concept based on my morning show calls this morning. I had no idea, #breakingnews.
It's Easter weekend with several options to coloring for all the crazy hunts this weekend. Did you get the 24 Kt or the glitter coloring kit? Which ones work the best?
It's funny how being the dad you just grab anything that looks cool on the package. It's obvious they market to people like myself because they SUCKED! I watched my wife buy a few cans of cheap shaving cream, dye, and end of with perfect looking colored Easter Eggs. My eggs looked like a bunch of misfits which I'm not even sure in 2018 if that's not egg discrimination 🐰
If you're planning on coloring Easter eggs this is actually a very simple way. Here are a few things you'll need because that dye gets on everything!
- Boiled Eggs
- Sterile Gloves (if you have them - it just help clean up much easier for you)
- Food Coloring
- Shaving Cream
- Towl, rag, paper towel
Spread shaving cream in a bowl, cupcake style pan, or anything you want really. Just remember that whatever type of surface you use that you have to spin or move that egg around to get a swirl effect. Just think of which surface works best.
We use this muffin pan which was perfect for us to put eggs in different compartments. Quick note: The lighter colors don't stain as well.
Take dye and drip them in each one of the compartments and take a toothpick to swirl them. You can use whatever you like to mix them up - we used a straw.
The next part is the fun and messy portion. Our son loved this and couldn't wait to make a mess.
If you use gloves you will have less the mess for sure. I'm still covered in red dye! Rookie mistake.
Wipe off eggs with old rag or towel. You can use a paper towel if you like but we found an old towel. Come on - we all have the one that is falling apart!
That's it! Happy Easter.
Fyi: This wasn't my idea. My wife and son get all the credit because I tried the packaged stuff. #epicfail
