Ah, and we Polacks dumbed it down even further by just eating the darned eggs with a bit of horseradish as a symbol of Christ's suffering...  (The horseradish, not the eggs.)

But seriously, those eggs are lovely!  I might have to give this a try some time when I'm feeling more brave than right at the moment.  Meanwhile, I'll stick to my Polack eggs, which involve food coloring and vinegar, and a very specific tool know, I think, as a spoon.  Dunk, roll, dunk, roll, very sophisticated!

This year's round of eggs were a little different- we still did wax art on the eggs, but we did graphics instead of patterns.

Here's a quick snapshot before they were dyed:



The eggs look much better in person than in the pictures- the different depths of wax don't stand out so much and the pictures look clearer.

Just a further note (possibly reviving this board?): Instead of the really complicated melting-wax-off-with-candle method, you can put the eggs in an oven, on top of a cookie sheet covered with paper towel, at about 250. It works just as well, and takes much less effort!

Easter again and time for more egg pictures!

This year I bought beeswax and added the color in- it works much better than crayons these days. I used a cup cake pan for the melting and we all had a ball.

Ok, could someone set me straight on this? I see that in one picture some eggs seem to have raised colors on them, as though wax were purposely left on for that color. Am I right in that assumption? Would that be applied after the dyeing processes?

The method we use does leave the wax on the egg. It creates a raised pattern that remains on the egg.

There is an alternate method which removes the wax, but to see the results of that method you need to see the picture here:
