Friday Fish Fry

Traditional Fish Design in Golden Wheat and Asparagus

An oldie but goodie today!  I love this traditional design from the Ukrainian Gift Shop's Design Book 2 and have recreated it many times.  It is such a satisfying design because everything is interconnected, creating the fish design by interlocking shapes and small details, reminiscent of Escher.  In the original, they use a brown egg, with yellow and brick dyes.  I chose to use my current favorite Golden Wheat and Turquoise on a white chicken egg, with a final color of black.

I hope you enjoy it!
