    Here is the video ...



    Well I decided to try it, today.., and here is the results. only thing , I worried cuz I did not have those tiny rubberbands to keep the silk tie material securely around the egg, so I used twist ties and some cotton yarn that I had, so the dye from the silk ties did turn the white cotton cloths pink ...but to me the eggs still turned out pretty good..

    well can;t seem to upload my pics here so will have to try with the Upload a file instead,,the pics may be smaller. will see...

    The eggs displayed are beautiful! My Grandma each year hand-colored eggs in a traditional way brought from Europe, learned from her mother. Each egg took 4 to 8 hours to complete. She was Czechoslovak, and yet I learned on-line the tradition was begun by the Ukrainians. Nowhere near Czechoslovakia, so, who knows? Here's what they looked like:

    Frank that is a lot of work, I saw it on tv once how they do it... well trained hands and eyes and utensils to be so masterful like that... .. they are beyond beautiful..!! and I doubt its a lost art as I have seen them many times.. can be very expensive too, but well worth the price , hand done like that.. thanks for posting..

    Patsy , I really had fun doing it and its the surprise at the end when they came out so pretty. I did eat one today..:oops::D:D
