Serendipidously Dyed Egg

This Easter the kids opened the egg dying kit and lost the instructions, so my wife just did what she remembered doing in the past, and put vinegar in the dyes.

That mostly worked out, but it seems that the magenta dye reacted badly and wouldn’t stick to the eggs. As a result, any eggs we put in the purple dye were almost indistinguishable from eggs we put in the blue dye, and the eggs we put in the magenta dye came out with light magenta speckling.

This egg was placed in the magenta dye, then incidentally got moved between a couple different drying plates. It ended up picking up some nice coloring completely by accident.
