Decorating Easter Eggs Czech style

 vjezkova on LJ introduced me the the Czech method of decorating eggs.

It's done with melted wax crayons.  I used a scent burner with a tea light to provide heat and once I'd got some empty tealights, I used them to put wax in and just put them on top of the scent burner to reduce the mess (and retain wax for next time).  You apply the wax with a pencil with a blob-headed pin stuck in it.  Takes a bit of practice.  The wax must be warm, not just melted and it's best if you touch it to the egg, pause for a moment and then do the draw move.  (I'll link to a video further down, but the voice over is in Czech)

Here is my second attempt (the first attempt was done with Oswin and consisted mainly of blue dots all over the egg)





Video - the beeswax is optional (I asked Vera)
