I’m so excited to decorate eggs this year! Ever since my cousin taught me the art of Pysanky (Ukrainian Egg Decorating) I was hooked! It is basically a technique of using wax and dyes to decorate and egg in the way I imagine you would do batik but never having done batik I don’t know if that is true.
When we moved to Dublin I didn’t remember to ship seasonal things so I haven’t been able to decorate eggs the Ukrainian way for a couple of years making it all the more sweet this year. The girls and I got out the dye packets and all the stuff and got to work on eggs on Friday. The girls are getting to an age where they can actually do them without too much help but I still keep a close eye because you have to use a candle to melt the wax that you use to draw on the egg with. Here are some examples from this year and past years.
I miss you Lisa!
