Happy Egg Day




I'd like to wish everyone a happy egg day. These photos are of an egg that one of my Moore students, Elise Anzini, was gracious enough to give to me. It must have been all of the egg studies I made her do....it was brainwash!

This is a real egg that has been hollowed out. She then used a batik method by adding hot wax in a design and then dipping the egg into dye. After the egg had been pretty much covered in dye and wax she then baked it.

Thank you, Elise. And also thank you to the mystery person who gifted me a Klimpt tea canister as seen in the background of the first pic. Nimble students, huh?!

Pretties! I love those batik-ed egg shells.

She really got into the detail! I have to find a way to string it and hang it from my shelf.

You can glue a gold finding to the top and string it through that. You can google 'gold findings chicken egg' and a few sites will pop up that sell packs of them for relatively cheap. But since you only need one, buying a 12 pack might be kind of silly.

Also you're welcome, I'm glad you like it :)
