I found this image on Pinterest, and was like "Yeah, I could do that." There were no instructions, so I just wung it.
My first question was how to keep the eggs upright. I didn't think they'd stay in place if I just leaned them against the cup. I fit three toothpicks at the bottom of the cup to form a triangle stand and balanced the egg on top.
I poured the boiling water a third of the way up the egg, then mixed in the vinegar and food coloring. In retrospect, I should have mixed the boiling water and food coloring in another cup and then poured it around the egg.
After five minutes, I poured in boiling water two-thirds up the egg to make the next layer.
Last round of color. I only waited three minutes as it was the lightest layer.
Drying out. The little white spots show the bottom of the eggs. Should have mixed the color beforehand.
