Because I am no quitter, I tried the silk-dyed eggs again. After the last batch, I talked with the Art Guru at school and she gave me some solid suggestions for achieving better results. She also praised my eggs and told me how beautiful they were; I love how she is SO COMPLETELY an art teacher. She suggested that I wrap the silk a bit more carefully and tightly so that the silk has more surface contact with the egg. To be honest, the first time I pretty much threw the silk around the eggs without paying much attention. So I bought more eggs, followed her advice and had better results (of course, because she is a friggin' genius!). The results aren't stellar by any means, but they are indeed better.
|Before. All wrapped up in silk ties.|
|Egg #1. A bit patchy but okay.|
|Egg #2. More patchy, but I kinda like it.|
|Egg #3. I think this is my favorite.|
|Egg #4. This one is okay. Just okay.|
|Egg #5. I wish the stripes were more prominent.|
