DIY: Silk-Dye Egg Craft – Part 2 (Egg Designs Revealed)
Here are the designs of the Silk-Dye Egg Craft that I have done a few days ago. There are some imperfection of the designs as this is my first time to have done it. I hope you still like the results of my eggs, folks! Enjoy!
This is the result dyeing an empty goose egg with the blue neck tie. It is blurry but you can still see some of the designs. I just thought I haven’t tighten the silk around the egg’s surface. I also learned that one should tie separately the silk and the white fabric rather than tying them all in one.
I have high expectation to this red tie that it might come out most beautiful of them all, but turns out it didn’t. I think the rubber band didn’t do very well in holding the silk in place near to the egg’s surface.
This is the result of the green tie, which I least expected, but it turned out to be the most colorful of the three ties I tried.
I tried a fourth design using a handkerchief that is also 100 % silk. I used twist ties twice, for tying the silk around the egg and for tying the white linen cloth. I boiled it in the water (with white vinegar) a little longer like for 45 minutes and it turns out that the silk-dye penetrated to the egg shell more.
So now you know how to do this easy DIY, would you like to try it?
