Friday Egg: June Wedding

Batik Egg Art Geometric Lace Design in White and Robin's Egg blue by Katy David

Friday Egg today is called "June Wedding" and it is my second attempt at this lace design. My first attempt was not successful. I may post that next week so I can show you yet another example of over-etching. Sometimes I can achieve a really interesting effect with a little bit of over-etching, but this one did not turn out as desired. When that happens, I usually try to put the egg away for a few months until I forget what it was supposed to look like and then I can see it for what it really is. Does anyone else do that?

This is an etched goose egg in the simple white of the shell with a robin's-egg blue background, achieved with a very quick dip in Patina dye. I really love how this turned out, delicate but with a nice color contrast. I worried a lot about that correct intensity. Too bright and it would not have the effect I wanted of an elegant lace overlay. I think the color achieves this perfectly. 

Happy Friday.
