Amber Roots Lithuanian Heritage Club
March 16, 2013 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join us for the March meeting of the Amber Roots Lithuanian heritage club.
Next Saturday we would like to focus on Easter eggs. We will work on two kinds. The scratch method using onion skin dyes and the wax method using regular dyes.
If you want to do the scratch method, please email me so I can dye an egg for you in an onion skin dye. And please bring in an exacto knife for scratching. Also rubber bands; 1/8 inch wide or narrower, and to fit an egg. If you want to learn to do the wax method, please let me know so I can dye an egg for you, or you can dye an egg yourself, or just use a plain boiled white egg.
Please bring in an empty tuna fish can to hold the candle. And please bring in a pencil with a straight pin stuck into the eraser. I ordered bees wax candles which still have not arrived. I am waiting. Regular wax can melt and run on the egg. Bees wax holds better. Tee lights made from bees wax work well.
Of course, you can just watch and then do the eggs at your leisure at home.
I will bring in some eggs to pass around for a couple of games. If anyone has an Easter story or information on Lithuanian Easters, please bring it.
