I began my business by selling handmade batik egg ornaments at local farmer's markets and craft shows, as longtime fans of ALC Unlimited will remember.
Here are the photos and steps in case anyone finds it useful or interesting.
ALC Unlimited eggs were real chicken eggs that were batik-dyed by using hot wax to cover areas before switching to the next color of dye.
All of the egg ornaments were handmade by me using the traditional wax resistance method; however, I did use a modern electric kistka.
The eggs were then varnished and a finding was glued on to turn the egg into a hanging ornament.
Eggs could be decorated as a unique gift for any occasion: Easter, Christmas, birthday, wedding, anniversary... The possibilities are unlimited!
Here is a description of the step by step process for making the egg ornaments:
Thank you for your support over the years!
I don't decorate eggs anymore at this time, too busy tending the garden and raising a family.
If you were fortunate enough to get an ALC original, remember there is a small butterfly hidden somewhere in the design.
