Pysanky Eggs...

I am creating some pysanky eggs for a co-worker, I still have two more to go but am taking a break.  I tried embossing on one of the eggs, just to see what would happen.  Well, I can't say that I was disappointed because it is a cool effect.  However, with the time it took and the amount of powder it took, I just don't think it is worth the embossing.  Other than adding a little texture, the shine is about the same as the  clear varnish that I put on the pysanky when it is finished.  It was worth a try, always will try or experiment just to see 'what happens'.

One thing that I did learn today, that my embossing gun works wonders removing the wax off of the egg.  I had not thought of using it before, but a co-worker asked if it would work.  I wasn't for sure if it would or not, so I figured I would see what would happen.  And, it was great!  Typically I use a candle, which I am terrified of burning down the house becaue sometimes I can be clumsey!...However, the gun works great and I will use it again to remove the wax.
