Pinner said: my ukrainian grandmother taught me how to make eggs like this when I was young. use melted wax to draw a design on the eggs, allow it to dry, then dip the egg into dye. once finished dying, allow to dry, then warm the wax (she did this over a candle flame), and wipe the wax off with a towel. if you blow the egg insides out beforehand, then the eggs will last forever!
Apply gold and silver leaf over blown eggs for an elegant touch. We decorated chukar and turkey eggs in lavender and champagne-pink silver leaf, and chicken, pullet, turkey, and goose eggs in varying shades of gold leaf. Gold leaves and gilding glue are available at Pearl Paint.
totally could modify this and not use real eggs. and it would look just as stunning without the cut outs. Just use the black puff paint on anything - wood, plastic, whatever, cover with a shabby white or shabby pink and then sand it off here and there for more shab fabs. I am so there I want to get started right now! :D
