The Next Egg

Accidental Stonewash
Gold 02/Dark Red 01/Black 01

This design was coming a long swimmingly, until the wax fell off during the black dye, and then the shell rejected the dyes. The design was tight, and it was taking color beautifully until then. Drying the egg with light pats caused enough color-sloughing that I went ahead and scrubbed most of the black off.

It's neat looking, but hopefully irreproducable.
