I've been altering Easter eggs for several years and becane very excited whe nTim Holtz announced the release of Oxide Distress Inks at CHA. I purchased the 12 colors from maymaymadeit.com.
The supplies I used were:
White plastic eggs( you can find them at Walmart or Michaels)
Rub the inking tool with the ink pads and apply directly to the eggs. You can also blend colors on the inking pad and apply to the eggs. You can also use the re-inkers on your craft mat and apply to the eggs.
Allow the eggs to dry for 6 or more hour.
Note the eggs react to moisture/water
