Default Another way to color Easter eggs

A friend posted this on facebook. I'm going to try it with dye reinkers. Bummed that the pic didn't copy, and that I don't know how to transfer it. I'm on fb as "Renee Topping Drew," so you can see it there.

SHAVING CREAM EGG DYE
1. Spread cheap white shaving cream in a cookie sheet
2. Apply drops of neon food coloring across surface
3. Use toothpicks to swirl colors around
4. Roll the dried, cooled hardboiled eggs in the colorful cream (we used disposable kitchen gloves to reduce the tattoo effect)
5. Allow to set for 3-4 minutes on a paper plate
6. Wipe off shaving cream with paper toweling
7. Rinse! Voila! Beautiful marbleized eggs, done quickly!

I would not use reinkers if you are going to eat the eggs. Might not be food safe!
I make some hollowed out egg decorations and that might be easier than dying them
( always hard to get the dry again on the inside) cause even if the shaving got inside it wouldn't be a dripping mess.

Hadn't thought about the inks not being food safe. Thanks, Yankee, for keeping my family safe! ♥
