    Very cool. By the way, what color(s) of dye were used to boil and treat the eggs pictured on the project page? Does the black dye that was specified produce the blue-green gradient veining depicted? I surmise that the exterior shell color is red because they were first boiled in red-dyed water.

    1. Nick Normal says:

      I’ve tried a blue and a green; both colors returned very muted results, like washed out/down hues. My guess is the black dye, combined with the salt and other conditions, produces a dark blue vein but at least the vein is noticeable. Other colors just seem to wash away.
