Step 1:

Cut approx 30 cmm of the willow and stick the egg on top.

Step 2:

Add marbling inks to the water in the plastic container. Put in 10 drops to start off with, add as many drops in as you want. The more you add, the more consistent colours will look.

Step 3:

Cut off a little bit of the willow to use as a stirring stick to create your unique patterns on water.

Step 4:

Put on gloves and carefully dip the egg in the water solution. Marbling inks are oily and very tricky to get off so use gloves and be careful as the egg will jump back up.

Step 5: 

Make a bow from the ribbon and attach it to the top of the egg with a drawing pin. It will be easier to dry this way.

Step 6:

Hang up and leave to dry for approx. 15-20 minutes.
