hippie eggs.

here is my weekend attempt at dyeing eggs naturally:

i used boiled red cabbage to create a blue color {and a smelly kitchen!} and marbled them with veggie oil. since we didn't already have alum on hand, but did somehow have two jars of cream of tartar and they are almost the same thing, i used that as a quick replacement. i think that might be the reason why they came out looking very glam rock {glam egg?} and covered in crystals! it was pretty fun, but the instant gratification part was definitely not involved, as it took approximately 3 hours from start to finish. i could have left them in a bit longer to get a darker color, but i had already finished my book and was ready to go to bed. woo, exciting weekend!
