Ukranian Egg Decorating
The egg has long been a symbol of new life, new beginnings, fertility, and shared as a token of love, friendship, and good wishes throughout the year. Ukrainian Egg Dying or “Pysanky” is an ancient art form akin to Batik. Melted beeswax is applied with a stylist called a “kistka” and the egg is dipped into a secession of dye baths. Between each dipping wax is applied over areas where the preceding color is to remain. After the final dye bath, and all wax is removed, the colorful result of your design is revealed.
