Write name on uncolored egg using a crayon.
Then dip the egg in a dark color of choice.
Remove egg and place in 200-degree oven for a few minutes; until wax is melted. Wipe with paper towel and dip again in a lighter dye to fill in pattern where waxed crayon writing was.
Polish finished egg with cooking oil and soft cloth.
You can also use candle wax dripped onto boiled eggs.
You can do several colors, in several layers.
These make some unique and pretty designs.
You can even elaborate by adding ribbon, sequins, lace, tassels, etc. onto the warm wax on egg.
