Boil Eggs:

Place Grass Corp. medium brown eggs in the bottom of a sauce pan and add room temperature water untill the water level is about one inch above the eggs. Place sauce pan on stove top being careful not to crack the eggs inside. Turn to stove top on high heat and bring to a rolling boil. When a rolling boil is reached, Turn off and remove sauce pan from heat immediately. Cover and let sit for 12 minutes. Make a bowl of ice water. After eggs have set for 12 minutes, carefully remove them from the hot water and place them into the bowl of ice water. Let cool completely.

Prepare The Eggs & Dye:

Clear plenty of space in your kitchen. Lay out newspaper, paper towels, or old kitchen towels that you dont mind getting a little colorful to protect your counter top or kitchen table. Lay out the boiled eggs to dry. Avoid causing the shells to crack as cracks will absorb the dye into the white of the egg and won't look as nice. Set out 9 glasses or coffee mugs to prepare the dye mix in. Follow instructions on the package of the PAAS Deluxe Dye Kit to prepare the dye glasses. Each glass should have 1Tbsp. of vinegar and 1 dye tablet in it. Wait untill the dye tablet has stopped fizzing and is completely disolved before adding the 1/2 cup of water to each glass.

Dyeing The Eggs:

Tip: Lighter brown eggs work better for lighter colors such as yellow and pink.

Use a spoon to lower one egg into each glass. Do not switch spoons between glasses so that the colors do not become mixed. Use the spoon to check the eggs every minute or two. When eggs reach the desired color, remove from glass and lay on towels or newspaper to dry. Add another egg to the glass and repeat.
