It's still Friday right? I think I will be getting this done in time to still qualify for Friday egg.
This is a new design! I am really enjoying the freeform movement of the swirling colors. This design was inspired by my friend Julie. She has a nephew she adores and she is making up stories for him about a make-believe bird called a Tippyloo. She called me to ask whether I could create a Tippyloo egg to send him for Easter and this is what came to mind immediately. I am still playing with the design and colors - next week when I have a working camera (these photos were taken with my i-phone) I will post photos of a few more colorways I have explored with this design. It reminds of of those beautiful agate gemstones like this:
I started with a brown egg on this, waxed and then dyed yellow. Waxed the yellow layer and then etched it down to white and waxed that layer. Next I dipped in Brick very briefly to get the terra cotta color and waxed. Next I dipped in Asparagus for the dark green and once that layer was waxed, I washed the dye down to a lighter Asparagus color and waxed that layer.
I hope you like it, because you will definitely see more of this design.
