Friday Egg!

Traditional Rose and Eternity Band Diagonal Pattern Ukrainian Egg in Rose, Black, White, and Brown


A brown chicken egg etched and dyed with a pretty rosy pink color. Traditional design, contemporary colors.  I like how this one turned out, and am always a fan of the diagonal band.  It adds a lot of dynamic energy to the design.  I started with a brown egg, waxed all the brown lines, then etched it down to white so that I could get a really clear and bright pink.  Sometimes a brown egg will give the dye a brownish or yellowish cast, good for some things, but I was interested in bright this week.  Waxed the white lines next, then dipped in Rose Red and waxed, then dipped the final color of black.

Katy, I love the coloring and shading effects you achieve on your eggs. Very nice!

Thanks! I really like how this one turned out - the rose color from Pysanky USA is a very pretty foil to the natural brown of the chicken egg.
