Generic Egg: Wooden Fishes

Next Egg

First Fish Egg
(brown egg)/Black.

Before I scrounged enough jars to mix dyes, I brought some eggs and one color of dye at a weekly gathering at "Generic House" in Somerville. If enough people were intrigued, they might help me get more dye jars and blow out eggs.

The first two eggs were done whole. Among other things, this meant I had to dewax them the old-fashioned way, with a candle. This egg has some burn scars on it. I also was unable to keep it from breaking before getting a photo.

People loved the fishes, but some thought the random design on top looked like wood parasites of some kind. Fooey.
