November: Holly Day Egg

The Next Egg

Holly & Star
yellow/orange/light red/(green, wiped with yellow)/dark red/black

Another design in anticipation of who is on my family gift list. Once again I had to trick the green into being green. The red came out extra dark and muddy.

I've debated doing specifically Jewish eggs. The Easter 2000 batch was actually done for a Pesach/Easter party. Generally, though, if they're that devout, they seem to nix the idea of decorated eggs altogether. I offered all my eggshell harvesters an egg. I was turned down by some who thought it inappropriate in Their home.
