  3. Take a rack to dry the eggs.
  4. Mix a teaspoon of vinegar , 25 drops of food coloring and 1/ 2 cup hot water in a ” paint pot ” and stir it .
  5. Once the eggs completely cooled, and their shells are completely dry , begin with dying the eggs.

The longer the egg in the dye bath is , the deeper the color will be . As a rule, you need 10 to 15 minutes a deep, luminous color.

Make craft a ladle of thick wire and use the shells you have on hand .

In order to create gradations of color, the egg dip once quickly for the brightest color.
Then dip the egg again , not quite as deep as the first time and leave it for 3 to 5 minutes to rest . Lift again to create a third band of color , and leave it in the dye for another 5 minutes or longer for a deeper color.

To create a two colored egg dip in one color , leave the egg on the drying rack for 15 minutes. Finally, dip the other end in a second color.

For the DOTS cushion and tea towel line we were inspired by the Memphis group. We translated this style from the 80′s with a modern twist. If you want to know more about it, the Dutch design plattform Designblvd.nl dedicated a whole blogpost to what they call New Memphis.
