Happy Easter eggs

Happy Easter 2016!
Although the annual egg coloring process at our house gets more elaborate each year with the various dying techniques we experiment with, Larry has perfected the egg boiling process! 
The new technique this year is the sticker resist.
Start them in cold water. Bring to a boil. Take them off the heat and let cook for 13 minutes. Remove the eggs from the hot water and put them into cool water. Done.

We had no cracked eggs in the entire batch! They are easy to peel and the yolk is not green. This is the way to do it.
Rubber band resist. Shibori eggs?
We bought some brown eggs again this year. They have to be dyed in a dark color—like green or purple—to see any contrast. However, the natural un-dyed brown eggs are a nice addition to the basket of pastel colored eggs.

Wishing everyone a happy and colorful Easter season.
