You Have To Look At This! It's AMAZING!

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
Hi everybody,

I was just watching "Easter Unwrapped" on Food Network and they showcased a Ukrainian egg artist. She's absolutely incredible! I saw the designs on the eggs and wanted to share. The designs are intricate, but pieces and parts of them would be amazing if piped, embossed, or brush embroidered on a cake. Great ideas for brain storming! Check out the 3D artist link; there are some professional pictures of her eggs, and there is an artists bio on Patty, the artist. Hope you all enjoy the link!

I saw the show too ~ they are beautiful! Did you catch that 1 egg can take up to 40 hours to make?, and I thought making my cakes and cookies were time consuming

My husband actually works with a guy who does that. He used to compete with them, but I guess he won everything, so was asked not to particiapte any more. We bought some absolutely gorgeous ones for only $40 each from him last year. They're so intricate, I love them.

My DH who knows I'm addicted to CC took one look at those and asked "how did they make cake look like that?" icon_eek.gif Gotta love him. Had to take a few min to tell him that they were real eggs. He has seen some amazing things on this site, now he doesnt know whats real and whats cake. icon_biggrin.gif

I am Ukrainian by birth, and of course, it is almost a requirement of our nationality that we learn to make these.

I also teach this technique. It is time consuming, but the final product is well worth the investment in time.

What I didn't understand is that they said she sold chicken eggs for $50...but didn't she say those same eggs take 40 hours? How can she sell them that cheap?

Because that is the price that the market will bear. Pysanky are sold internationally, but normally only to those who do not know how to make them. I charge a dollar an hour for my pysanky work, and I have often been told that I charge too much. When you look at the intricacy involved, and how fine some of those lines are, you begin to appreciate your #1 tip work. The largest stylus I have for pysanky is larger than a #1 tip.
