Well, I was supposed to be on hiatus due to Screen Free Week, but that was a bit of a bust. While I didn't get a lot of blogging time in, I did use the time to work on my mad Photoshop skills. Last night, though, I channeled all that creative energy into one of my favorite annual activities - dyeing Easter eggs!
Like last year, we used Karo corn syrup and food coloring to make the dyes. Like last year, it was a sticky mess. Still, the combination of those two items makes for some very vibrant colors. I tried using a toothpick to drag dye across the egg. I tried putting some in a dish and rolling the egg around to make a pattern. I tried a fork. The best results came from using the dye like a finger paint. So if you can stand touching sticky stuff, that's the way to go. If you like your eggs a little lighter, that effect was acheived with the bowl.
