dye (or white) is sealed under pure bee’s wax applied with a batik-like “kistka” that is heated near a candle flame. Try to keep the candle carbon out of the hopper because they clog easily. Once you get it going, though, they seem to go on forever. Layer up as many colors as you desire. Then the egg is hollowed out by displacing the poked yolk with light syringed air pressure through one drilled hole at either end. The yoke shoots out around the needle.Then water is likewise swished around and blown out. Next, the wax is melted off and the egg is varnished. One needn't be an artist to collect & use patterns. Have fun! Mini movie.
Jody Schwartz will share photography with both the St Clement Fine Arts Ministry on Sunday January 17 at 10 AM in Wyburn Roderick Hall; and on Monday the 18th with Clem's & Clementine's at 11 AM in the Mayfield Room, (with a wonderful luncheon to follow; Communion at 10:30, of course).
All are welcome to receive Jody's warm enthusiasm and inspiration for great shots of loved ones. Bring your camera or iPhone to practice some of Jody's tips, indoors and outdoors, weather permitting. TIPS
