Eli Bockol, works with double-yolk Turkey, Goose rhea, and Ostrich eggs predominately. Eli’s process includes acid etching: within his series of dye baths, to create, in addition to color an overall relief pattern.
“Rather than painting, eggs or alternatively dyed and then “written“ over with liquid hot beeswax to preserve the dye color of the underlying area. In the final process the layers of wax are melted off to reveal vibrant colors, and intricately crafted work.”
