This is a real quail egg ornament painted in gold and decorated with red and green wax.

To create this egg, I used the pinhead method also known as the drop-and-pull pinhead method. In this method of making pysanky, mostly used in Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovenia, and Lithuania, a pin stylus is used as a tool. The head of the pin is dipped into hot wax and applied to the eggshell. There are two basic techniques used in this method: wax-embossed and wax-resist.
This egg is wax-embossed, so the wax persists on the eggshell, forming a raised wax surface that you can feel when touched.

The egg has two coats of an epoxy finish to give a beautiful look, along with strength and protection for the egg.
It measures approximately 1.25 inches from top to bottom and 1 inch from side to side.

The ornament has hanging elements with matching beads. It comes in a gift box and an information card.

It makes for a beautiful gift and will become a cherished keepsake for someone special in your life.
