EGGS BECOME ART

 INSIDE THE BYRDS NEST

 

WHAT ARE BATIK EGGS?

Batik Eggs are dyed using a wax resist process. Using a tiny funnel attached to a stick, melted beeswax is applied to a real egg. The wax adheres to the egg preserving the natural eggshell. The egg is then dyed. More wax is applied on top of the new color preserving it, this process of applying wax, then dyeing, and then more wax is repeated until the entire pattern has been encased in wax on the egg. The wax is then melted off to uncover every color used to create the intricate designs. 

The egg is finished by coating with plant based non-toxic Ecopoxy to give it UV protection, shine, and extra strength. All the pieces offered at Inside The Byrds Nest, from display eggs to jewelry to hair combs, are created out of real eggshells and dyed using this wax resist process. Nothing is ever painted!
