Not my best idea.

We tried something new for coloring our Easter eggs this year. The package promised vibrant beautiful "Candy Apple" eggs. The results? Bright, sticky, gooey Easter eggs.
The concept was cool. And it came with a custom pallet to mix the colors in along with two brushes.
The brushes included in the kit were junk, so we used some brushes of our own.

The eggs were slippery and more than one accidentally got dropped and got just a little bit chipped.

The paint/dye mixture was gloppy and sticky, but eventually we got the hang of it and were able to make some cool looking eggs.
The shiny finish and bright colors were great. The colors also blended well.

There was plenty of concentration and creativity invested in these eggs.
Smiley, happy egg!
The girls and I waited and waited for the eggs to dry. We even tried drying them with a paper towel. Finally we put them back in the fridge still tacky.

The next morning those darn eggs were still sticky! Abby said, "Mom, next year let's just use the kind with tablets that you dip in the color."

Sounds like a plan.

They actually look pretty cool. Sometimes, the ole standbys work the best....
