In this video, SurpriseFunTV shows off a fun egg decorating kit called “Shake it!” It is an interesting idea with fun results, and you don’t even really need a kit to do it yourself at home.
There are a lot of different dyeing techniques out there: the traditional dip dyeing, sponge speckling, and covering them in pieces of silk are all popular ways to do it, but this is the first time I’ve seen decorating with rice. I just love the simple results you get and you can be so creative with this process.
All you need to recreate this fun and simple idea is: white rice, liquid food coloring, and small disposable containers with lids (if you use washable containers you may never actually be able to get the dye off).
In the video, he only does one color for each egg, but it would be fun to do a multi-colored egg. You could shake it up and cover it as normal and then drop it in another color, or only cover it partially before adding another color to it. You could try covering up half of the egg and coloring it and then doing the same for the other half with a different color. There really is a lot you can do with this technique. What do you think of these eggs? Is it worth a try? Is there something different you would love to try with your rice dyeing? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
