Do different colored onion skins give you a different color (I'm thinking of the purple onions).
Have you tried other natural dye stuffs, like walnut shells? Smiley

Is there something else besides eggs you can dye in this same manner?

I lOVE your Easter eggs - definitely going to try.  I made Easter eggs a couple of years ago using a different decorating method and the workshop presenter told us you don't have to blow out the eggs.    Just make sure they have absolutely no cracks and paint them as is.  Eventually the egg dries out  - when you shake the egg you can hear it .  I would think these eggs would be less fragile.

I'am almost sure that technique came from Russia or another East Europe country because my mom (from Ukrane) every Easter paints eggs in that manner Smiley And all russian housewifes apply onion skin for that purpose!

Here are some another natural dyes for eggs:

dark brown - boil eggs in water with black tee or birch leaves.
red - add beet juice
bilberries and cowberries give lilac and pink color
dried (or fresh) spinach, parsley give green color

I would think the purple (red) onion skins would give them a lovely color and I would think that walnut hulls would make a beautiful chocolate color.  Going to make some for my grandkids and my church for next year

Alright this thread is from 2007, but earlier in 2012 other people were posting, so why not?

I stumbled upon this and I love it to bits and pieces! I'm going to drive myself into the ground trying to figure out how to duplicate this on glass!

ok - so if this has already been answered I'm sorry!

Do food colourings work to dye the eggs? would love to try this with my boys.

I just heard of using onion shells the other day for egg dying and it's nice to see what the technique actually does. They're very pretty!
