Preparation

4. Place the egg on an egg stand.
5. Pump the Spraytastic Applicator 10-12 times.
6. Hold the Spraytastic Applicator 6-8 inches from the egg and hold down the trigger.
7. Once fully colored, place the egg on the drying tray.
8. Repeat steps 3-7 until all eggs are colored. Refill the Spraytastic Applicator with various color of dye as needed.
9. Once the eggs have dried, place the pillar candle in the center of your glass cylinder.

10. Place the eggs carefully in the cylinder, arranging them around the pillar candle.
11. Using the Offray ribbon, wrap it around the top of the jar and tie a bow.

Dudley's Helpful Hints
• No time to boil eggs? Try using Walmart's Decorating Easter Eggs with Dudley's Spraytastic Egg Decorating Kit.
• A little bit of color goes a long way!
• The eggs will look more interesting if you layer different colors, so leave some white space on the egg and apply a second and third color.
• Avoid mixing too many colors so your eggs do not turn brown.
• If you clean your Spraytastic Applicator between colors, be sure to spray out the water before adding your next color. Also be sure to rinse out the nozzle area. Opting not to clean the applicator between colors will allow you to create new colors, but do not mix too many colors or the color will become muddy.
• If you are using egg stencils, make sure your eggs are thoroughly dry. Place the stencil on and rub the edge to ensure a good seal. Wait for the dye to dry before removing the stencil.
• Pat the egg with a paper towel if the spray is too heavy.
• Test your eggs and candle inside your glass cylinder to ensure you color the appropriate number of eggs.
• An egg carton or muffin tin can be used as a drying tray.
• Having multiple Spraystastic Applicators will allow you to switch easily between colors, plus it allows helpers to color eggs simultaneously!
