    These are not traditional Ukrainian egg designs, but it is a fun project and will use up some of your extra white eggs!

    LOVE THEM!

    I tried to tackle that project for the holidaze...
    let's just admit it -too many project not enough time!

    How did you get the chickens on them? I found the waxing really hard-but those eggs are wonderful!

    any hints for about 3dox goose eggs?
    thanks

    You need a special tool called a tjanting to put the wax on with (and put the chickens on there). Are duck eggs white? That might work great, -more space to work with!

    I thought the thing you put the wax on with was called a kistka? I would love to try doing this, but I don't have one of those thingies yet, or any wax [​IMG] I'm not any good at drawing on eggs. I'd need a big ole egg to draw anything that fancy! [​IMG]

    Oh! I stand corrected. It IS called a kistka. They call a similar tool used in batik a tjanting.
    I checked out your links, Becky, and love all your bird drawings! You could definitely draw on an egg! I'm an art teacher, so I know! [​IMG]

    Thank you [​IMG] I guess practice makes perfect, so I better get to practicing. I have managed to draw a few birds on an egg with a sharpie. Turned out pretty good, although it would have looked better if I had the fine point ones. Sooo I guess that's a start [​IMG]

    Beautiful!! I love the globe. This is one hobby I've always been interested in trying but never got around to it.

    Those are BEAUTIFUL. Hope to see more designs. I'm not talented enough to do that. Do they make 'Paint by Number' eggs? : )
