measuring out a design, first waxing covering White, second wax covering Yellow,
etc. Your audience will certainly ask questions. By having eggs prepared ahead of time, it is valuable to being able to answer a question with an example in hand. It is also advisable to have at least three eggs that are completely waxed and dyed, so that you can demonstrate taking off the wax with a cloth and candle. This breathtaking moment will speak louder than any explanation. Often I will remove only a section of the wax on a completed egg, and save another section for another audience, etc. But if you have enough completed eggs then you are good to remove all wax.
The photograph below shows the prepared batch of eggs for a demonstration of Lemko style
pysanky. In the left column you see pencil guide lines on each egg; middle column, I have done wax on white and at the demo will place each one into a dye color; right column, I will write over the yellow and then dye it a second time. All of these eggs need to be dyed, then another wax, then dye, then removal of wax with a candle. Lemko eggs usually have one or two colors only and the wax is removed in the end.
