This was really fun and not that hard. All you have to do is find some ties that are 100% silk. These are easily found at any second hand store, and they will usually be pretty affordable. Turn the ties around and cut down the middle to open them up. Cut a section to fit your egg and wrap it with the tie pattern facing in towards the egg, tie using a twist tie or string. Then wrap your eggs again with a lighter fabric (I used a cut up white pillow case). Tie with a string or twist tie.. this is just so that the colors don’t bleed onto each other. Once all of your eggs are wrapped, place them in a pot and cover them with water. Add 1/4 cup of vinegar and then cook for 20 mins on med/high. Remove all of the eggs carefully, let cool and the fun part begins - The Big Reveal! Some will turn out better than others. Brighter fabrics with more contrast work well and remember that usually the uglier the tie, the better the egg :) Happy Easter!
This is awesome. Who doesn’t love a flip book? Artist Juan Fontanive, ‘crafts custom stainless steel boxes fitted with motors and intricate gears, which drive his screen printed animations of birds and butterflies in endless, Rolodex-style loops.’ Absolutely Beautiful.
