see! dumbed down!
no I'm kidding...

You can get very detailed with the Lithuanian eggs too... My mother and my grandmother both made beautiful eggs... my lines were always crooked and my dots off center... I just make them for the fun of it... I can't imagine how funny my eggs would look if I tried the stylus...

Because we did this on a school night, we decided to use hard boiled eggs and then on Friday night to make some hollow ones. So..here we boiled the eggs in a nice big pot, cushioning them with a dish towel to prevent *side splatter deaths* from eggs bumping against the pot.



Next we dyed the eggs.



Because I didn't have anything else handy, we opted to melt our wax in little cupcake holders, which actually worked out quite well.



We armed ourselves with pencil/straight pen 'paint brushes'



and started to 'paint'. Dad is so good at this..lol



Our finished products (mine, Dad's, the kids, etc)



These are REALLY bad..lol. But with the kids bumping us and such..well..you know. The kids had a ball though, so it was worth it.

Hopefully Friday's batch will come out better.

I don't think those are bad at all, they look fabulous. I remember doing this as a kid, I haven't thought about it in years, what a fun project!

I also made some eggs last night.  They are not nearly as ornate as Tam's, but I had lots of fun doing them!

I like your eggs a lot...the flowers are adorable, and your crosses are MUCH neater than mine!

My family does that every year, but with the kistkas and beeswax.  (kistka: metal cone with hole in one end attached to a wooden stick - you hold it in a candle flame until it's hot, scoop up some beeswax with it, and draw on the egg with the melted wax, put it in the first color, add more wax, second color, etc.)

My dad has a few eggs he decorated four years ago, with the eggy bit still inside...It's actually all dried up inside, and doesn't smell!

I went vegan in November, so I'm not doing it this year...
