Hot off the bench! And with a new puppy ( resting for now ) at my feet! This particular batch was done on very light beige eggs compliments of Rob Hunter, Manager at Frog Hollow in Burlington. Thanks, Rob! They were fun to work on. The background color of the egg gives the design a slight antique patina. I had fun designing the "Doll eggs", as my daughter has dubbed them while taking a photo for me. I thought they resembled Russian Nesting dolls, myself. These eggs were alot of work, and took much longer to do! I had to hand-paint the faces with the egg dye and a paint brush- much like a watercolor, and then wax over it and continue on with the clothing and decoration (a lot of paisley in the background)!
We are coming up on my first Ukrainian Egg Demonstration for 2013 very soon, and I am getting ready! I hope to see you at Artists' Mediums in Williston on Saturday, March 2nd, from 12-2:00pm!
