Easter eggs by pralinkova-princezna Easter eggs by pralinkova-princezna
Various eggs and egg shells. Some eggs were dyed in green artificial colour, the yellow one is coloured with curcuma (I tried natural means of colouring) but the result was not very satisfying. It still looks more or less like a brown egg. They are decorated with melted wax pastels. Most designs are just a big experiment. =D
Some of the egg shells were made layst year; I was happy to find them when I was looking for the basket and other decorations.
The orange-brown eggs were dyed with onion peels.

Happy Easter! :dance: And remember, the main reason for Easter still remains Jesus Christ. ;)

That is right! I'm glad to hear someone mention Jesus lately....he is the reason for this holiday. Beautiful eggs. Were they brown when you started out? How did you color some with onion skins?

Thanks!
some of them were brown, you can see one brown shell at the top.
Onion skins: take many peels, even pieces, cover the egg in them and tie in a handkerchief (put on many layers of the peels, this step is tricky, they keep coming off). Then boil in water with vinegar, untie and voila! surprise :D

It is drawn with hot wax. You use the head of a pin fixed in a pencil.
