Duck eggs dyed with onion skins and new foliage picked in the back yard.

Dyed silk as a happy extra. Instructions in Eco Colour by India Flint.

Very much enjoyed. I'm having a break now for the Easter weekend. Happy Easter!

  5. Cristina - hello. Thanks for visiting. The eggs are wrapped in foliage, then onion skins then silk. The foliage acts as a resist on the eggshell and leaves a print. The India Flint book has great instructions.
