Happy Easter from SERVPRO of East Fort Worth!
We hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful spring weather! The wildflowers are in bloom and the Easter bunny is on it's way!
If you haven't already prepped and colored your eggs for today SERVPRO of East Ft. Worth would like to help get that perfect shade of green or orange today.
If you're using food coloring
Our favorite orange shades of Easter egg with this method are Celosia orange, a beautiful deep rich orange color, or it's slightly different but festive alternative Orange sunset. Both can be achieved with drops of food coloring in white vinegar. Celosia orange takes 18 drops of yellow and 8 drops of red food coloring to achieve and the amount of time/darkness is up to you. For Orange Sunset you need 17 drops of yellow and 5 drops of red.
If you're looking for green then green apple or the even brighter neon green are where it's at! For Neon green simply use 10 drops of green food coloring from McCormicks neon selection and for green apple use 20 drops of green and 2 drops of blue from the neon colors kit.
You can leave the eggs to soak in white vinegar until they reach the desired color or if you'd like to make some orange and green combo eggs try filling a bowl with shaving cream and dripping dots of green and orange coloring over the top and swirling it to create a pattern before rolling the eggs in your colorful mixture. Once covered in saving cream you can sit them aside to soak up the color before wiping the shaving cream off and Ta-DA! tye-dyed eggs!
Natural Easter dying methods.
Anyone who's wanting to forgo the food coloring this year don't worry we have you covered too.
Each dye color requires the same process—you just need to substitute the final ingredient to change the color.
Bring 1/4 water, 1 tablespoon of salt, 2 tablespoons of vinegar, and 2 tablespoons of the respective fruit, vegetable, or spice (to create the color) to a boil.
For green eggs you can use parsley, spinach, matcha tea or a combination of turmeric and red cabbage.
For orange eggs you can use onion skins, paprika, chili powder, or if using brown eggs turmeric.
However you choose to decorate or celebrate. We at SERVPRO of East Ft. Worth wish you a hopping good time today.
