It helps if you’re not too set on specific colors because the great joy of coloring eggs the natural way is that they are in charge. Sometimes it’s the texture of the eggs that makes a difference in absorbing the color. It can also be affected by the original hue (brown, white, blue or green) of the eggshell itself will affect the result.

You’ll want to keep the eggs in there at least 30 minutes and you can even leave them in overnight for more depth of color in the refrigerator. This is called the “cold method” of dyeing eggs because both the eggs and dye are at room temperature or colder.

This process is a great help to people seeking to move away from using store bought artificial dyes.
