PINK-Frozen cherries – made a very light pink
RED-ORANGE-3 tablespoons of chili powder produced a nice reddish-orange color
YELLOW-3 Tablespoons of tumeric produced a great yellow
GREEN-A mix of spinach leaves, canned blueberries and their juice and a few tablespoons of tumeric produced a gorgeous earthy green color – I think it would work without the spinach leaves, but I happened to have some that were wilting so I threw them in.
BLUE- – 1 pound crushed frozen blueberries boiled about 15 minutes (red cabbage leaves could be used for lavender shades)
GREY BLUE-2 cans of blueberries and their juice made a grey-blueish color
GREY-Frozen cherries mixed with blueberries yielded a grey color (not the purple I was going for).
Making Easter Eggs the natural way is a lovely way to get to know your colors and share the experience with children. No two eggs will ever be the same and the many different effects will bring out the artist in everyone.
