Remember last week when I dyed eggs with Kool-Aid? The grape ones came out all kind of grungy and busted looking. At first I was sort of disappointed that they weren’t bright purple, but the more I looked at them, the better I liked them! They kind of look like a really intense version of the eggs that I used to find in the chicken coop at my parent’s farm, and so it got me thinking.

I’ve had this feather stamp forever, but you could use any stamp that you have around (or carve one yourself!). I think the key here is the awesome white pigment ink — it looks really cool on the grungy purple-grey color.

Ink your stamp so that it’s got full coverage but be careful not to overload it. Carefully stamp down on the egg. I found it best to start at one end of the stamp and roll it along the side of the egg, because of the curved surface. You might want to experiment once or twice to get a feel for it.

Let the stamp dry and set them somewhere cool! These eggs looked particularly rad hiding inside one of our pots of succulents. xoxo

  1. What’s your process for getting that perfect amount of coverage on stamps? Too little is too little and too much just effs the whole thing up. Do you have a good strategy?
