Friday Egg

Great colors today!  Basic traditional design, but instead of starting with a white egg, I dyed the goose egg with Pysanky Showcase Golden Yellow. After waxing all the beginning design lines, I washed the egg back down to white for a few details, then green, orange, pink, peacock blue, purple, and red.  Final color was black.  I'm happy with how it turned out - it looks like kente cloth to me.  What do you think?

This photo comes from Exploring Africa - check it out - lots of very cool pictures of kente cloth patterns.  

Okay, so here are a few more photos for your perusal.  Happy Friday!

Scale object is a nickel this week - everything costs more these days!
