Real eggshells are used in this batik method, most from local sources. Eggs are blown, washed and dried. Design is drawn on with beeswax and a “Kistka” and then dyed with each successive color. Wax is melted off to reveal the design. Since dyes are not inherently colorfast, the finished egg is given coats of a hard MSA solvent based acrylic U.V. gloss varnish, although still advisable to keep them from direct sunlight.
