Friday Egg: Summer Sunset Persian Flowers




Friday Egg Persian Flowers in Sunset Colors Batiked Eggshell

Happy Friday, everyone! Hot summer day colors to me are reds, oranges and yellows. Today is an especially hot summer day here in Texas (104 degrees Fahrenheit!) and in honor of that, I offer a basket of flowers in summer sunset colors inspired by the colors and stylized shapes of Persian carpet florals. I started with a goose egg dyed with Goldenrod, waxed the outlines and then washed the dye off with Ivory dish soap. I then dyed the egg with Asparagus: a quick dip makes a light green with a gray cast that complements the flower colors. The flowers are made of CarrotScarlet and Dark Red dyes.

I will be migrating my blog over the next few months, so please make a note of the new name and address: http://katydavidart.blogspot.com/ 

Thanks! And Happy Friday!
