Easter colored eggs decorated with parsley leaves
Painted eggs for Easter are a beautiful tradition that many worship. Even in Soviet times, when, instead of Easter, citizens went to a communist subbotnik, people took colored eggs and Easter cakes with them to refresh themselves after working outdoors. The eggs were usually painted with onion husks, all the variety was in the intensity of the color - from deep brown to golden yellow. Nature has rewarded us with rich material that we need to learn how to use. If you combine old and modern technologies, add natural materials, then the result will be original Easter eggs.
Stock up on food-grade gel paints, they are harmless and have a rich color. Take a knitted mesh, which is used for lining in sportswear, collect more onion husks and a bunch of fresh parsley, but not curly. Everything else is a matter of technology and your patience, skill will come necessarily.

A method of preparing colored eggs for Easter, decorated with parsley leaves
To begin with, we will wash and boil the testicles. The rough side of the sponge will remove not only dirt, but also the ink print on which the grade is usually indicated if you are shopping in a store. Happy owners of domestic chickens will not have to wash off anything except dirt.
Washed testicles are packed in a knitted mesh. Tighten the net with a thread or regular rubber band.
Pour cold water into a stainless steel pan, add a few drops of green gel dye and a tablespoon of vinegar. We lay eggs, put on the stove. After boiling, keep on low heat for about 10 minutes, then leave in the paint for another 5-6 minutes.
Remove the mesh, rinse with cold water. Egg shells turn green and mesh knitwear is printed on it.
We take a bunch of parsley, cut off the most beautiful leaves of small size and regular shape. Pour 200 ml of boiling water into a bowl, put the leaves in boiling water for 30 seconds, so that they soften.
One by one we glue the leaves on the shell, using a regular needle or a thin stick, level the leaves on the surface. With a cotton swab, we expel water from under the leaf so that it fits snugly against the shell.
Once the egg is finished, we pack it in a net, tighten the knit with an elastic band so that the parsley does not fall off.
In a saucepan, cook onion peel for about 30 minutes, cool the infusion.
Put the eggs in a pan with husk infusion, put on the stove, bring to a boil, leave for 30 minutes, longer.
We get out of the infusion, put it in cold water. By the way, the mesh can be dried, it can last a long time.
The luster of the shell can be given with olive or other vegetable oil - we rub the shell with oil, remove excess with a soft cloth.
