The Electro-Kistka for EggBot is a compact kistka — a hot wax dispensing pen — designed to work with the EggBot. With it, you can use the traditional wax-resist and dye (batik) method to produce stunning colorful eggs in the same fashion as Ukranian pysanky eggs.
In the example shown here, we first “paint” the wax logo on a bare (white) egg, and then dye the egg red and allow it to dry. We then paint additional wax onto the egg (the words “Electro-Kistka”), and finally dye the egg black and allow it to dry again. Then, after melting away the surface wax, we reveal the design: a black background, with red and white areas.
Repeated application with care can produce more detailed designs, with additional color layers.
This kit contains the complete Electro-Kistka attachment for EggBot and basic accessories that you need to get started. It comes assembled, tested, and ready to install on your EggBot. It is compatible with both The Original Eggbot (white chassis) and Ostrich Eggbot.
