I think that since Easter is coming in just a few short days, I'll show you pictures of my visit to the local "Eggstravaganza" (No snickering allowed. My husband snickered and it almost earned him a punch.)
There were about a dozen or so egg artists there, selling their beautiful eggs. Some of my classmates displayed their eggs, too and if you ask me, they are just as lovely as the vendors' eggs.
There is another type of egg design, called drop and pull. The best way I can describe it is kind of like the reverse of pysanky technique. Instead of doing the process by waxing then dyeing, the egg is dyed first and the wax is applied as the decorative part. The last two eggs show that technique. Very pretty.
You should be able to click on the photos to enlarge them and see the details of the eggs.
