"The rain isn`t that bad because I actually use water to kind of set the chalk into the concrete. But the wind is blowing my chalk all over the drawing. So I have to put almost twice as much chalk in because you can literally see it blowing away when I put it down on the ground."
But the wind didn`t seem to slow things down. Betty Sprynczynatyk and her sister Debbie just threw up a tarp and and that was enough to block the wind from damaging their Ukrainian easter eggs.
"An egg shell`s an egg shell. If you drop an egg it`s going to break."
She`s been decorating eggs with wax for nearly 40 years and says it`s been a great hobby.
"It wasn`t very hard. My first ones I wouldn`t brag about. I always say it takes about at least a half a dozen before you`re satisfied with your lines and colors."
She`s more than satisfied now and can make an egg in about four hours. She`s selling them for about $25.
But if a decorated egg isn`t your thing, you might enjoy something for the grill.
"Keep in mind this one`s about fifty to a hundred use. So from the heat of your grill surface it will custom form to your grill grades. Right handed, left handed, no problem. This notch here is just for leverage. The blade is designed and cut thin enough so you can also use it as a spatula," said Shawn Ung, creator of the Scrapesation product.
There`s even plenty for the little ones, including fun with inflatables.
Capital A` Fair continues Sunday from 10:00 to 4:00.
