Easter Egg Crapsmanship

Standard

My two attempts at trying a new egg-dying technique were a failure, but perhaps it wasn’t due to my crapsmanship.  This tutorial (http://www.coupons.com/thegoodstuff/dye-easter-eggs-with-shaving-cream/#) for coloring Easter eggs with shaving cream and food dye seemed easy enough.  But instead of hard-boiled eggs, I used these craft eggs I got on clearance last Easter:

Eggs 1

No spoiled eggs with this product!  I rummaged through my cabinets to find these supplies:

Eggs 2

I sprayed the shaving cream into the 12 compartments in the muffin tin, and then I swirled combinations of food coloring in each.  Below you’ll see Li’l Miss helping me out.

Eggs 9

I smushed an egg in each compartment, Eggs 6

and then covered each egg with some of the surrounding dye and shaving cream mixture.

Eggs 5

Though the original tutorial said to let the eggs sit for 15 minutes, I let mine go for over 30, just to be on the safe side.

Eggs 7

Next, I carried the muffin tin to the kitchen sink and spray-washed them all.  CRAP ALERT:  Much to my disappointment, only one egg was completely covered with dye, though it was still unimpressive.

Eggs 8

Thinking that my technique was at fault, I tried the experiment again.  This time, however, I used vivid hues of blue and red.

Eggs 10

Another failure!  I’ve decided that the fault in this craft was really not in the technique or in the crapsmanship.  Instead, I’m blaming it all on the eggs, and if I try this again, I’ll use the real hard-boiled one called for in the tutorial!
