They Sink in the Dye Better!
I only work on raw eggs. As you can see in the photo, the egg sinks to the bottom of the dye. I do not have to hold the egg down in the dye. So I get a strong even color, with no marks left on the egg. Some artists hold the egg down the(floating) blown egg with an inverted shot glass or other methods. This can distress the wax, smudging it or even removing XX Fine lines. It can leave you distressed, lol!
I generally apply one coat of varnish, let it cure for 24 hours, and then drain the egg. I apply a second coat or more.
I have been experimenting with leaving the egg un-blown for smaller eggs, like chicken and turkey. But have not done so with goose eggs. Please see my blog on Un-Blown eggs.
