It seems that now and then I have to create a Pysanky egg. I find it fascinating that a white egg can become something so colorful! So here I am making one with a rabbit (surprise!) The photo at the top is the final result and the others show some of the process I used to create it.
The final result!
After dying the egg a light orange, I applied wax in the places I wanted to remain orange and then placed the egg in the next color.
I continued by applying wax after each color dyed until I finished all of the colors.
Hopefully that makes sense. If not, ask questions!
Then I had to remove the insides of the egg with this little gadget which makes it very easy. Just be careful or you will have a cracked egg!
I melted the wax off the egg at a low temperature in my oven and voila! This is the best part - to see the result!
(See the picture at the top.)
This has not been an easy post! There is a problem with my photo uploading feature on blogger and I had to use the HTML feature. Eash!
