Dudley's Helpful Hints

• No time to boil eggs? Try using Walmart's Decorating Easter Eggs with Dudley's Spraytastic Egg Decorating Kit.
• If using dairy eggs, you can also use natural brown eggs for this project. Your dyed eggs to have a darker, more earthy feel to them.
• 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.
• Having multiple Spraystastic Applicators will allow you to switch easily between colors, plus it allows helpers to color eggs simultaneously!
