PassEasterover Egg: Classic Colors

Next Egg

Classic Colors at home
yellow/dark red/black.

I mixed up the dark red, still lighter than the red I had in class, but, good enough for a classic colored Ukrainian Egg. I followed just one of the kit designs, rather than testing out several of them. The one end resulted from a slipped kistka. Batik drives home the idea of art being "happy accidents", ok?

I had been decorating the eggs for the two whole days before Easter. Each egg takes about 3 hours, and the "happy accidents" are really quite nerve-wracking.

I thought I'd stop shortly, but once I saw how nice the red eggs looked, I wanted to add more red eggs to the basket for the LSE Easter Party.
