I tried something different, again. This time, I bleached the egg after the last color (black) was added. I also made the dividing line slanty on purpose, mainly to see what it would look like ^_^ It made everything off-center, but I rather like the effect. I also seem to have a tendency to not do follow traditional patterns anymore... Hmmm... lol
So, yeah. Wheat represents, among other things, a wish for a good harvest and such. The top and bottom are supposed to represent the sun and have little spiral thingies coming out.
I was kind of surprised to find that the last color used left tiny little outlines, not unlike my last egg. I'm just happy the white lines made with the wax can be distinguished from the white background
For interested/curious parties, I've posted my step-by-step photos that I took throughout the process here: [link]
. Not really a tutorial, per se, but if you already know how to do pysanky, you can use it as a pattern guide. Or if you're just curious, it gives an idea of how much goes into these things >_<;
