Painted Easter eggs are a beautiful tradition honored by many generations. Modern technologies have brought a lot of new in painting - pysanki from film, food dyes and much more. But there are always people for whom food and chemistry are not compatible - for them my recipe. I'll tell you how to paint eggs with turmeric, onion peel, gauze and dill. Believe me, if you approach the process with love, then no beautiful Easter egg made of PVC can compare with eggs painted with the help of natural materials.
In a pharmacy, buy a piece of gauze, this rare fiber structure leaves a pleasant texture and uneven cells on the shell. You will also need a bunch of fresh dill, ground turmeric and onion husks, which I advise you to start storing in advance. Sometimes, when you forget to create a stock, you have to peel the bow, and it dries quickly, without clothing.

How to dye eggs for Easter with turmeric, onion peel, gauze and dill?
We put a dozen eggs in a basin with warm water (30-36 ° C), take the usual soap and wash my shells thoroughly. If you rub thoroughly, the prints with the grade indication will be washed at the same time. Then rinse the testicles with clean water, and you can proceed to the decoration.
We take a bunch of dill, cut off the topmost branches. I do not know how they are called correctly, maybe the leaves, although they are not similar. In general, the stems are not needed, they are hard and do not stick to the shell.
In small portions we put the branches of dill in boiling water for 15-20 seconds, then glue on the shell chaotically.
Scalded dill is piled up, disassembled with a toothpick, while you can set almost any dill pattern.
Cut off pieces of gauze that are suitable for size, gently place an egg in dill in the center, tie it tightly.
We prepare a decoction of the husk in advance - water of 1.5 liters, washed husks, cook for 30 minutes, cool. Testicles in gauze are placed in a cold broth. Be careful if you put in hot water, then all the work will be in vain - cracked. We put on the stove, bring to a boil, cook for 10 minutes and keep a little more in the saucepan to soak up more color.
We take out the eggs, put them in a bowl with cold water, cool them right in the package.
Remove gauze, wash under cold water with tap water, wash off greens.
Here's a pattern. In principle, this can be stopped, but it is possible to continue, especially if the color of the shell turned out to be saturated brown tones.
So, stir the ground turmeric in a bowl with hot water, put boiled eggs, leave for 20-30 minutes, you can leave for the night.
We had very nice painted Easter eggs, so that the picture seemed brighter, we smeared the shell with a small amount of vegetable or olive oil.
Easter eggs dyed with turmeric, onion peel, gauze and dill are ready. Cook with pleasure, bright holiday for you!
