Looks pretty cool, and definitely less hassle than having to produce so many different dyes.

I've been meaning to link you to this technique which I came across a few years ago (not on that blog, obviously). It's not natural, but it does look amazing.

Cool! I wonder if you could use that technique with blown-out eggs instead?

Presuming that you can boil blown-out eggs without the shells cracking, then I can't see why it wouldn't. Then again, what do I know about dyeing eggs. But I would have thought so.

I'll try doing it without dyes once, and then I'll have a better idea.

Don't you dye eggs ever?

No, it's not culturally a thing here at all. Possibly connected to the fact that it's really quite difficult to get white eggs in the UK. (As far as I know brown eggs vs white eggs is determined by the colour of the hen's ear lobes, but there's no nutritional difference between the two. But for whatever reason, perhaps a perceived healthiness attached to brown food, we almost exclusively have brown eggs here.)

That's a pity. You CAN dye brown eggs, of course, though the eggs will be tinged with, well, brown.
