This is a chicken egg pysanka in its natural white color. It is decorated with black and white wax. It has two flowers and a lace design encircling the egg. Carving and a white and black wax-embossed design mirror the delicacy of lace.

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. On this eggshell the embossed texture, similar to a delicate lace, is complimented with elements of carving.

The egg has several coats of a matte finish to give a beautiful, natural look, while also providing strength and protection for the egg.
The egg measures approximately 2.50 inches from top to bottom and 1.75 inches from side to side. The egg comes in a white gift box with an acrylic egg stand.
NOTE: The egg comes with a clear, acrylic reversible cone stand, not the tulip stand as pictured.
