I have another design based on mid-century modern pattern, done on a goose egg. Starting with a white egg, I waxed the basic leaf pattern, then dipped in Procion Avocado. I waxed the inner leaves, then dipped in PUSA Asparagus for the background color. I love the deep rich green of the Asparagus dye. It's the perfect tone to be dark enough to show off the design but still register as a color.
