Beautiful!  I've done beeswax designs on eggs before, and watercolor images, but this technique is totally new to me.  I love the bright colors showing through the black shapes.  Wonderful textures and contrasts.

Thank you very much! I have never tried beeswax but I did try using wax from regular old candles I had. It was kind of messy and left a greasy residue on the egg so I gave up. I did come up with another idea that I have not tried yet. I'm waiting for some supplies to arrive. Stay tuned for a possible new discovery!

When we used real beeswax, we were able to finish the eggs by heating it, wiping off the extra, and rubbing the residue over the egg.  It gave a lovely soft shine.  But pure beeswax is very soft - if they get dusty, the dust sticks! 

I look forward to seeing your next creations!

I adore your eggs. I've been wanting to try hand painting some myself. These are beautiful. You always have great color combinations.
