Sir Bear
Classic Ukranian eggs don't need any intervention to preserve them. Be
sure to use FRESH (not hard boiled) eggs that dont have any extra
chemicals on the shell.(You can tell by licking the shell - reject any
that have a 'chemical' taste). Do your wax/stencil/dye technique and then
let Mother Nature slowly solidify the insides until you have a nice
Ukranian 'rattle'. I have classic Ukranian eggs ranging in age from last
year to over 30 years old that still look magical.
Does anyone know the
Ukranian tale of the magic associated with the eggs? I think it is the
same phenomena as "dream-catchers", we may make the artistic object but we
don't have all the magic to be complete.
