Extravagant Emu egg Contest 2003

Pysanky Wax and Dye

 

Batik Relief

Raised flowers and other writings on this emu egg shell were accomplished by leaving the shell in acid. It was necessary to leave the shell for long periods of time to get the egg shell down to the lightest color possible. In order to dye the egg shell in pysanky fashion it's most important to work on light colored eggs. With the many acid baths the designs were etched, but the area that took on the most etching was the area of the netting design. It's etched so , that the three netting areas look like real netting. Most of the netting area that was not covered in wax has been etched through the shell. To accomplish the correct effect for a pysanky egg it took a considerable amount of time.
