With Easter approaching, Ziggy decided to have a little fun on eggs. Wondering if it was even possible to color on an egg and what would happen if he dyed them after using Zig Postermans on them, he created a little experiment. What he found was that the waterproof markers work great on Easter eggs and the dye does nothing to the marker!
First, Ziggy drew on a few eggs using different colored Zig Posterman waterproof markers. He used orange, yellow, blue, red and white for this experiment. After letting the markers dry,he dropped the eggs into standard egg coloring dye, made with vinegar, water and the egg coloring tablets from a local store.
Upon pulling the eggs out of the dye, he discovered that the dye had no effect on the eggs! In fact, the dye made the markers stand out more on the eggs by adding contrast to the colors.
After letting the dye on the eggs dry overnight, Ziggy decided to continue his experiment. He wanted to see if cleaning the marker off the egg would effect the dye. He used both Windex and Zig Posterman cleaner on the eggs.
In both experiments, the cleaner removed both the marker and the egg dye. Furthermore, in this instance, the Zig Posterman cleaner worked better at removing the marker from the egg than the Windex did!
So, when coloring Easter eggs this weekend, be sure to grab some Ziggies and have a little experiment of your own!
