A whimsical Friday Egg today! It is a turtle with a traditional star design shell flying through a flower and dot filled space with his upside-down buddy on the other side. The brightness of the colors against the black background remind me of folk art embroidery.
I started the regular way with a white eggshell, then just kept adding new colors. I washed the eggshell back down to white several times to ensure that the colors were bright and clear. Sometimes the colors can get a bit muddy and dark if you do too many successive layers of dye without washing back to white as a background again.
Enjoy your sci-fi traditional zoological space exploration egg!
