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

  10. Have never believed in the supernatural or talk less of spell or even voodoo.In my head there was nothing on earth that was ever going to get me involve in such thing but life was we know throw s**t at your door and some how the doors opens up and let it strike you.************* My twin sister was having an affair with the my long time boyfriend.I mean i only found out the day he told me was no longer want to be with me that he was in love with my twin sister and he has been cheating on me with her.This was after four year of dating.I lived in pain for a whole year having to see her face every family thanksgiving day with the man i love sitting side by side kissing him and hugging maybe to piss me off or something it only made me hated her more and more desperate to get my boyfriend back.I got him back finally yes i did, but i can fail to say i did not use the normal way Metodo Acamu help me cast a spell to kill their relationship and rekindle ours to how we were before they started her affair.In case you asking asking yourself how possible it is believe me i don't know and won't tell you i understand cos like i said i never in my life thought it would result to me using a spell or something but there is one thing i know is that the spell worked for me and made my love fall in love with me again.There not much i can say to emphasize how the spell worked all i know is that i was asked to get some materials for the spell of which i was to buy and go present the materials myself to Metodo Acamu or send over or send the expenditure to him to get the materials need for the spell.to me it was less expensive to wire th cash to him to get the materials cos they are the expert in it.But i know in the end METODO ACAMU pulled through with the spell and made me whole again.Like honestly my main purpose for writing this was to let those out there know that other comment about METODO on the internet is really cos here i am tell you my story it can get anymore real than it is already.I can never forgive my twin sister even though i have got my love back.Use this email address as METODO ACAMU contact metodoacamufortress@yahoo.com
