I read, How do I color an egg black? and I was wondering if such questions are on-topic.

Essentially the question is about how to get a black hollowed egg that is then filled with powdered material, which means:

  • the egg is not used as food
  • the question is not about food safety
  • the question is not about tools used for cooking
  • the question is not about a recipe
  • It did seem slightly off topic to me, but I am still learning the culture of this site.

No, it's off topic because it's not about something that people will reasonably be expected to eat.

Similarly off topic would be:

  • Questions about sugar glass
  • How to make Caro syrup and food dye look more like zombie blood?
  • How to prepare food for food photography?
  • How to make homemade play-dough?
  • How to make a salt sculpture?
  • The zombie blood one would be ok for a gory cake, but not for a haloween costume.

  • Good point. I was thinking zombie blood when used as a costume / special effect.
