This beautiful Easter egg was made using a wax resist (batik) method. Beeswax was scooped into the stylus and heated in a candle flame. The molten wax was applied to the white egg with a writing motion; any bit of shell covered with wax sealed to remain white.
Then the egg was dyed yellow and more wax applied. Bits of shell covered with wax remained that color. After the final color the wax was removed by holding the egg next to the flame and gently melting it.
