This is a chicken egg pysanka. It is painted pink and decorated with white, and dark pink wax. The egg is divided vertically into three parts by a wax lace design. Its pink and white wax-emossed design contributes to the egg’s lace-like delicacy.

To create this egg, I use the pinhead method also known as the drop-and-pull pinhead method. In this method, 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 several coats of a matte finish to give a beautiful, natural look, along with strength and protection for the egg.
The egg measures approximately 2 1/4 inches from top to bottom and 1 5/8 inches from side to side.
The egg comes in a white gift box, with an acrylic egg stand and an information card.
NOTE: The egg comes with a clear, acrylic reversible cone stand, not the tulip stand as pictured.
It makes for a beautiful gift for you or someone special in your life.
