 2)    When desired color is attained, remove egg from dye.  Place a piece of foil under several paper towels to protect surface.

3)  Let egg dry completely!  Wrap egg in paper towel to remove any excess liquid.  Once dry, add 1/2″ Craft Glue Dots.  They will stick super easy to egg shell!!!  We simply rolled the egg over the Glue Dot roll.  This helped to keep the perfect circle shape of the dot. *Can use Plastic Easter Eggs instead.
