Friday Egg: Butterfly Tree


Yellow and Green Butterfly Tree on Peacock Blue Background

A beautiful blue egg swathed in lacy tendrils - it's a butterfly tree.

I started with an egg dyed Asparagus and waxed in all the stems and leaves.  After I washed it down to white with Ivory dish soap, I dyed the egg Golden Yellow for the leaves and the butterflies.  There are two lighter yellow butterflies just for fun - maybe they aren't ripe yet?  The final color is Peacock Blue.
