Easter Egg Dye = Toxic Terror?

Easter rolls around and you start mixing up heavy duty reactive synthetic dyes using household chemistry like viniger.   Safe enough for Paas yet strong enough to stain my counter.   Where's a toxicologist when you need one?

My next batch will be dyed using coffee, berrys, etc.  

Gloves on!    Conforms to ASTM D-4236

Sources of natural dyes

interesting posting - Evelyn and I are converting some old Hough Bakery recipes to all natural and organic and I was thinking about how to make natural sugar sprinkles colorful... here is one source I found

I'd love to see more insight on this - any local sources of these natural food colors.
