Turn ordinary eggshells into works of art with traditional designs! For centuries, in countries like Russia and Czechoslovakia, people have revered the egg as a symbol of life, fertility, and love, and they have developed an array of artistic possibilities--egg blowing, wax resist, drilling, and d coupage--for beautifying it. Choose from chicken, duck, ostrich, goose, and quail eggs to get a variety of sizes; see how creative you can be; and then show them off in floral centerpieces, as ornaments and package trims, and more. For a distinctive mobile that will have everyone talking, dye some eggs, wax emboss them with stars and rosettes, and hang them up. Or, fill an Easter basket with varnished eggs threaded with colorful ribbon. With tricks of the trade, including how to start over if you make a mistake, this is the definitive guide to a timeless craft.
