Happy Easter


We colored eggs today.. What did you do?
I'm not Christian, but I believe in the easter bunny, and I've always had a great time at Easter! When I was little, my mother would leave Easter baskets full of candy around the house, and it would be the first order of business when we woke up to find them and attack the candy! ^o^ Then hopefully, an egg hunt later in the day. I have a lot of really fond memories of Easter days in the park with the family. ^^

By dilettantka, ee970, and myself! ^.^ We were retarded and just colored on hard-boiled eggs with copic markers. =D

I did Urara, Rin, Xelloss, and evil!Haro!

Eda did Tieria, Allelujah, and Setsuna!

Erin did Graham!

How did you color them?

When I dye eggs it's plainer, we have water and food coloring, with a bit of vinegar in it to make the dye stay. But, we draw on them with crayons first (cheap wax, basically!) so they have designs - the dye leaves the wax alone. So white designs can look pretty neat. Sometimes it's fun to put a sticker on, dye it one color, then remove the sticker and dye another color, so you can have say orange eggs with yellow designs.

These are nice enough, you should next time try blowing the egg out of a little hole and then dying up the empty shells, you can keep that kind :)

We used copic markers on them =D I wasn't sure if it would work, but it worked sort-of-okay, which was good enough!! =D

Yeah, I used to dye eggs that way, and it's so much fun!! ^^ But we didn't realize that it was easter until that day, so it was kind of spur of the moment with the things that we had on hand. =D;;
