Ukrainian eggs

draw on your egg first.
then put bees wax in the melty cup thing
melt the wax in a flame
now cover anything you want to stay white with wax.
this is December starting her design. She has a good book with lots of designs to choose from.
here are the dyes to choose from. They are not easter egg dyes.
this is my egg with the 1st color add to it.
this is my egg with all 3 colors added to it. After each color you have to cover it with wax to keep it from being dyed over.... get it?
then heat up the wax next to the flame, and slowly rub it off, bit by bit. It will show the design under all the wax in its true glory.
