Marble Eggs for Easter
Marble eggs for Easter are painted with onion husks and ordinary greens. Zielonka and onion are affordable harmless dyes that can help you achieve excellent results. But any process has its own characteristics. To paint green in an enameled bowl I strongly do not recommend. With such a saucepan you will have to say goodbye for a long time, since it is very problematic to wash a diamond green shade. Suitable for these purposes are stainless steel utensils or an old pan, which should be scrapped.

Marble Egg Ingredients for Easter
- 1 dozen white chicken eggs;
- 0.5 l of red onion husk;
- 0.5 l husks of onions;
- a sheet of writing paper;
- 1 vial of brilliant green (brilliant green);
- 0.5 m gauze or mesh;
- stainless steel stewpan or old pan;
- medical gloves;
- olive oil.
The method of preparation of marble eggs for Easter
Red onion husk is a must. Do not assume that it will color the shell dark purple. Despite the obvious difference in the colors of the onions, the purple husk colors in dark brown, about two tones darker than yellow.
So, we take the scissors and finely cut the clothes of the red onion.
Next, undress the yellow onions, and also finely chop his clothes. If you stock up on husk in advance, then a dozen eggs will need a half-liter jar of each color to fill, not filled very densely.
We cut approximately half a sheet of writing paper into small squares and thin strips. The more varied the pieces of paper, the more interesting the result.
Mix the slices. The amount of cut paper should be 2-3 times less than the husks. If you take more, the eggs will turn pale, with a lot of white spots.
My raw eggs under the tap, three shells with the abrasive side of the washcloth to erase prints and dirt.
We put wet eggs in a sliced plate, roll in this improvised breading completely.
Cut off the required number of squares from gauze or mesh. We put an egg in the center of the gauze square, tighten the edges with an elastic band or dress it with a thread.
Using your fingers, through the fabric, we distribute the slicing along the shell inside the gauze bag so that there are no large unfilled spots.
If the slices roll into one place, soak the egg in the cloth with cold water.
Packed eggs are placed in a stainless steel saucepan and pour cold water.
Pour about half a bubble of green broth into the stewpan, the amount of which directly depends on what intensity you want to get the color. In general, the more, the greener.
We put the stew-pan on the fire, bring to a boil, cook for 15 minutes on moderate heat.
Gently pour green boiling water, rinse the packed eggs with cold water until they cool.
Then we put on gloves, remove gauze, remove paper particles, rinse with running water.
To make the testicles shine like polished marble, grease the shell with a drop of thick olive oil.
After you got nice painted eggs, unfortunately, some problems remain in the form of a dirty sink and a green pan. You can quickly get rid of greens using a conventional paint thinner. Wipe the pan from the inside with a cloth moistened with solvent and wash with soap and water.
Marble eggs for Easter, painted with the help of onion peel and ordinary greens are ready. Happy holiday to you!
