All it takes is a little extra time to dye these awesome ombre Easter eggs. First, mix your choice of colors using 1/3 tsp (1/4 tsp for yellow) gel/paste food coloring, enough warm water to cover eggs, and 1 tsp white vinegar. Dip egg fully in dye and let dry. Dip the egg again 3/4 of the way into the dye and let dry. Repeat in quarterly increments.

Optional: You can also start by leaving the tip of the egg white. To create a multicolor gradation, start with one color and dip in quarterly increments. At the half mark, begin dipping by quarters in another color.
