So one goose egg is equal to about two large chicken eggs and that’s what I used here. The goose egg definitely gave me a lot more “canvas” to work with. Pysanky is a layering process, so that increased size gave me many more designs to keep track of, as I added the layers of color. Think sections and layers.
,Your initial wax design goes on the clean white layer of the egg and with each color, yellow, purple, black, I would add additional sections of wax design, which when melted back off would reveal the color below depending at what point in the dyeing process I melted off which section of my wax design and when I had laid that particular section of the design on. They say men can’t multi-task, but this was definitely a process of keeping track of multiple designs throughout the layering process.
Hope you enjoy.
