Beautifully intricate Romanian Easter eggs

jkottke:

The small village of Ciocanesti in Romania produces the most beautiful hand-painted Easter eggs I’ve ever seen. This video is a wonderful look at the process and tradition.

First, the (duck, goose, chicken, or even ostrich) egg is drained, through a tiny hole. Then, using a method akin to batik, it is dipped in dye and painted one color at a time, with the painter applying beeswax to those areas she wants to protect from the next round of dying. The painting implement, called a kishitze, is a stick with an iron tip. (Previously, egg-painters would have used thorns or pig bristles.)

And then the wax is melted and wiped off the egg, revealing the colors underneath. So cool. (via @colossal)

This is so wonderful. Must get to the motherland one day.

Wayne White’s cover for Lambchop’s Nixon

Had the weird experience the other morning of looking through Lambchop’s discography on Rdio and spotting this cover, and thinking, “Holy shit, that looks like a Wayne White painting.” Well, that’s because it is — White and Kurt Wagner, the mastermind behind Lambchop, were childhood friends, and White’s done four covers for Lambchop. Very cool.
