Soft dye colors for pysanky

I liked the way this particular egg took the dyes. The colors are more subtle and there are not that many hot spots from the commercial egg washing machine. I have not gotten into the habit of ordering eggs “unwashed” for pysanky, just use what comes from the local grocery store. I will say over the last 20 years egg washing has improved, i would sometimes find an egg in a carton that was scarred badly by going round and round in the rollers or whatever they use… completely unusable for pysanky.
