Naturally Dyed Eggs

Naturally Dyed Eggs

In creating the gear chandelier I began exploring ways to color the LED lit eggs. The slight color discordance in the artificial dyed eggs led me to look into natural alternatives that could produce mellower tones. I created yellow eggs dyed with tumeric, blue eggs dyed with cabbage, red-brown eggs dyed with beets, and yellow-orange eggs dyed with onion skins. These dyes block too much light for use in the chandelier, but I'm pleased with the colors and I'm brainstorming alternative uses for the eggs.

Inspiration and recipes for the naturally dyed eggs.
