This Kit includes 4 beautiful colors of natural dye that can create 6 - 7 colors. You will also receive an instruction sheet with a collection of fabulous “Creative Egg Art Ideas." Directions: Simply pour the powdered dye into 1/2 cup of hot water and place egg in solution for 10-20 min. Ingredients: Pure, natural fruit & vegetable extracts (spinach, purple carrots, turmeric, beets, red cabbage, and blueberries). Why use natural dyes? Some food dyes approved by the FDA include colors synthesized from petroleum derivatives. Most red dyes are made from carmine, which is essentially squashed bugs. These colors are by Natural Earth Paint in the USA, and they use recycled and biodegradable packaging and vegetable-based inks.
