Part of a plant is attached to the duck egg, which is wrapped in a nylon stocking and dipped in a water bath with Silk Royal colour, to which vinegar has been added.. The stocking is removed when dry and the contour of the plant parts appear on the egg.

Guide step 1
1.
Place a lightly pressed plant part; i.e. a flower or a leaf, onto the egg. Put the egg inside a nylon stocking and tie a knot. You may also tie a piece of string or rubber band around the egg to make sure that the plant part will stay in place (and it will also add a batik effect).
Guide step 2
2.
Dab Silk Royal colour around the contour of the plant part. Allow to dry.
