My experience with melting crayon shavings on hot eggs

I forgot to buy dye from the store and I didn't want to go out (i'm sick/exhausted today), so I did a google search on other methods for egg decorating. It seems like melting crayons on hot eggs is the trendy way to decorate this year. Instructions are here, here, and here. And more places I suspect.  Here's what I learned:
1. Don't forget to add vinegar to the water when you boil the eggs. I forgot and I bet my eggs would have held onto the wax better.
2. Don't shave too many crayons. I come from the school of more is better, but in the end, all the eggs were swimming in red wax. Also, the eggs all stuck to the plate once they dried because the melted shavings turned into one big crayon. I broke three trying to pry them off . See the soupy mess in the last picture.
3. Have the kids take the paper off the crayons. It takes them forever and keeps them busy.
4. My cheese grader is ruined? I haven't tried to clean it yet.
5. The kids adored the process and squealed with delight once they saw the crayons melting. I forgot to tell them, and they were so surprised!
6. I think this is a new tradition. Next year I will use less shavings, less reddish tones, and more eggs!

Have you tried this process? What did I miss?

  3. How fun and unique! Another cool idea I saw in a magazine was to put glue dots on eggs and dip the eggs in glitter (one dot at a time.) Time consuming, and probably a total mess, but it looked neat.

  5. I grated crayons once using a vegetable peeler, and a quick trip through the dishwasher was all it took to fix it up. Maybe try brushing off as much as you can and then send it through.

  6. maybe next year do it on wax paper so it doesn't stick to the plate
