To create a "Marbled" look to your Easter eggs, add 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil to your cup of egg dye.
You can start with a white egg, or one that has already been dyed a base color.
Quickly dip your egg in and out of the dye. The oil causes only some areas of the egg to get the dye, creating the marble design. Keep dipping for more intense colors. You can also let the egg dry and re-dip in a second color. Repeat as many times as you wish. When the egg is dry, blot with a paper towel to remove the excess oil.
Different amounts of oil will result in more or less marbling. Experiment to find the mixture that you like best. Remember you can always add more, so start conservatively.
P.S. If you don't have time to make your own Easter eggs, don't worry, you can buy a beautiful Easter gift basket at Holiday Gifts & Gift Baskets that is filled with foiled chocolate eggs....pretty sure no one will complain!
