There are many ways to dye an egg. Some people use Kool-Aid, food coloring, store bought kits, nail polish, and all sorts of other things. One lesser known method is an old fashioned way that uses dye from silk scarves to decorate hard boiled eggs. The scarves intricate patterns and colors transfer to the eggs, which turn out absolutely beautiful and truly unique, thanks to their level of detail.

All you need is eggs (uncooked), 100% silk scarves or ties, a ½ yard of white fabric, twist ties, white vinegar, and vegetable oil. You will also need scissors to cut the fabric and a pot of water to boil the eggs in, but that’s it! The whole process is neat and easily doable in under an hour.

However, do not use any of your favorite or treasured silk items because they will be altered by this; not completely ruined, but faded. Also, be sure to use only 100% silk to get the right results. Second hand or thrift stores are a great place to find them at the lowest cost.

To start, cut the silk and white fabric into 7 inch by 7 inch squares. Take an egg and wrap it very tightly in a silk square, then wrap that in a white fabric square, and secure with a twist tie. Once all the eggs are wrapped up place them in a pot and fill with water. Add 3 tablespoons of white vinegar to the water and boil for fifteen minutes.

Remove the eggs from the stove and allow them to cool off. Unwrap them from the fabrics and your done! If desired, rub the vegetable oil onto the finished eggs to give them a glossy sheen. The video says that the silks can be used 2-3 times in this fashion to dye eggs. The eggs are also edible, you start with raw ones and they becomes hard boiled by the end of the process.

The whole project is a great way to try something new, cheap, and easy with family and friends. Check it out!

What Do You See First – Rabbit Or Duck? The Answer Will Assess How Creative You Are.

Looking at this image, what do you see first? A rabbit? A duck? Many people see both and depending on how fast they are able to see the picture change from duck to rabbit can shed light on how creative of an individual they may be.

The image happens to be a classic optical illusion that has been around for over 100 years. In 1899 American psychologist Joseph Jastrow used it in research he was conducting about perception and mental activity. He found that those who were able to easily change their perception between the two animals had faster working brains than those who were slower and had trouble switching between the two. He concluded that the more creative a person is, the faster they are able to see the image change from duck to rabbit. Therefore, this image can help to assess how creative of an individual you are by looking at 1) what you see first and, 2) how fast you saw it. Try it now!

When it comes to optical illusions, they are all about the eyes, brain, and perception. Specifically, the eyes visually perceive an image which the brain then processes as not fitting in line with or matching the stimulus source that it’s emanating from. In other words, it’s when you look at something and end up seeing something else completely different. You look at X but think you’re seeing Y. Generally speaking, there are many different types of illusions and optical ones, also known as visual illusions, happen to be the most well known sub-category.

This duck-rabbit drawing has re-emerged as one of the most talked about optical illusions online in recent days. Check it out and see how you do!
