It’s Easter, so it’s time to color eggs! But aren’t you past the dye tablets and wire dipper? Make one-of-a-kind Easter eggs using one of these fabulous and (mostly) easy techniques, thanks to Wilton food-safe products, like Wilton Icing Colors, Color Mist food color spray, Pearl Dust edible accents and FoodWriter edible color markers.
Tie-Dyed Easter Eggs
It’s so easy to color your Easter eggs using icing colors, cotton swabs and paper towels. Just daub on the icing colors and rub with a paper towel to blend. You’ll love playing with the color combinations for bold or subtle results.
Pearl Dust Painted Easter Eggs
Make Easter eggs with an ombré look by painting hard-cooked eggs with colored Pearl Dust edible accents mixed with Wilton Pure Lemon Extract. By overlapping the colors in the center section, you can create a third color, so the colors appear to blend from one to another.
Shimmering Easter Eggs
You don’t need the goose that laid the golden eggs to make Easter eggs with a metallic finish. Color Mist food color spray makes it easy to make your eggs silver or gold. Spray your eggs with one color or another, or create a striped design or half-and-half look.
Doodled Easter Eggs
Use a FoodWriter edible color marker in black or another color to doodle designs on eggs for a modern Easter basket. Whether you attempt one of our designs or create your own, zendoodling has an additional benefit of calming and focusing your mind.
