Art: Cranes and Fans by Artist So Jeo LeBlond
I am very proud to say that this egg was recently featured in the Home Design magazine Weranda. You can view the online version of the article here:

This beautiful Pysanka will be Made To Order in the traditional batik wax and dye process on a real blown turkey egg. It will then be sealed with a coat of archival, industrial grade UV resistant, crystal clear finish and it's finished size will measure approximately 3 inches tall. The design has been reproduced from an actual piece of Chiyogami paper featuring gracefully flying cranes and dainty Japanese fans. 

The process begins by etching the shell to remove all the spots that naturally occur on a turkey egg. The design is meticulously drawn out in pencil before it goes through a process of waxing and dyeing. Etching technique is used to create the raised borders and create a three dimensional effect. 

This particular series is a bit of an experiment with my eggs as they have been gilded in keeping with the sumptuous Japanese paper art. High quailty 22 Karat gold leaf manufactured by August Ruhl of Germany was meticulously applied to enhance the rich detail. The adhesive used was actually applied using my kistka in order to achieve the finest line width possible.
