Ukrainian Egg Design Process & mini movie

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.
