Remember the tie dyed shirts from the 60's?  Too young?  Trust me, we used to do this with clothes.  

 

For a different, "tie-dyed" look on your eggs, try wrapping different size rubber bands around them prior to the dye bath.  The eggs pictured on this page just went through one dye bath, but if you feel creative you can do several layers of color.  Just add a rubber band each time you dip the egg.

Rband5.jpg (15908 bytes)These eggs are just out of their dye baths.  One thing to watch when using rubber bands is that occasionally one will come off in the bath.  When this happens, take the egg out and rewrap the band around the egg.

 

Rband4.jpg (13003 bytes)As you remove the different rubber bands, you will find some interesting effects have been achieved.  As we can see from this egg, the thinner rubber band was put on first.  When the wider rubber band was wrapped around the Rband3.jpg (24428 bytes)egg, it was raised over the "hump" of the thinner band and it left a break in the white line.  If you are working with long rubber bands and twist them twice around the egg, a similar effect will take place.  Sometimes with a very lovely "ribbon" effect as seen in the picture below right.

A word of warning here - the thinner, store-bought eggs may break while you are putting on the rubber bands, so if you are working with blown eggs, they need to be filled with sand first.  Work over a bowl or sink "just in case...."

Have fun!
