Amazing! A Blessed Easter Judy, to you and your family.. Craig
Thanks, Craig! To you and yours, as well.
Only the truly gifted have unlimited imaginations with no hint (nor taint) of boundaries that constrict and set up barriers. Now, who’da thunk up dye from those sources……garbage to some,…..dye to others…..like Judy, Judy, Judy !!!
Dearest Delores, first I’m soo glad you are on the mend because we all need a little Delores in our lives to make us a smile! I love color and if there is a way to capture it, Amen. Before my youngest son knew what Amen was, he’d always say, “I’m in”, so we’ve been interchanging I’m in for Amen for years. I’ve missed you! xoxoxoJudy
Judy this is so cool! What a great idea.
Thanks, Kren. I’m not sure if I liked trying to capture the color for the eggs or the photo of the colored eggs more. I know you know what I mean!
Amazing Judy! Love the natural colors. My uncle use to dye our eggs with onion skins when I was growing up.
Catherine, I was so surprised to get such rich colors from the yellow and purple onion skins. My favorite color was the blue from the red cabbage. The basket of porcelain trompe l’oeil eggs you made graced our Easter table. We think of you often and love your work over at http://cathymoberg.com
Those are gorgeous, Judy!
Thanks, Lucy! It would be a very interesting and fun project for you to do with the kids. Same with the jellybean taste test:-) Happy Easterand hope you are doing well. xo
I love all things blue–might have to try the cabbage dye!
Liz, it’s fun to play with these dyes. I polished each egg with a little canola oil when I was finished which made the color even more lush.
Thanks Judy….you must have seen my post about using red onion skins to dye fabric. Next time I will try beets for pink. I shared this post on face book it’s a good one.
Thanks, Cathy!! I’ll check out your post. Thanks for sharing, I appreciate it. xo
