Working on new Ukrainian easter eggs - - - part 2

I have been slow in my art stuff lately. I have been busy offline and online doing and accomplish tasks. Boy, I want to stay focus in this precious hobby of mine. Anyhow, I was able to finish the dyeing of colors in this one goose egg. I like the starburst design.
 These two different pictures is of the design of one egg. The front and back. I started designing into the white color base of the egg, then I dipped it to the yellow egg dye which you saw in the post before this one, then I designed again what yellow colors need to be yellow in the egg, then I brush painted the green dye to what needs to be green and covered it with beeswax again, then I dipped it to this red dye and thus the result in the pictures.
I t looks pretty impressive even though its not done yet. Because after I covered beeswax to what designs needed to remain red, I dipped it to the black egg dye which was the last one. I finished the process of melting all the beeswax and revealed the actual design lately but I will upload the picture after I refinish it and coat it with varnish. Stay tuned to the next part of this post folks. :)
