Pysanky Eggs

Last year I attempted my first Pysanky egg near Easter. (Photo below.)  Pysanky is a type of Ukrainian Easter egg. I bought a kit from Yevshan - the Deluxe Ukrainian Easter Egg Decorating Kit and it only cost $16.98 plus shipping & handling. (I'm not sure if you can get similar kits at Michaels or Hobby Lobby.)

I didn't post directions on how I did it because I followed the directions at That Artist Woman.

Here's a video about the history of Pysanky.

And, this is a video about how to make Pysanky.

I'm excited about trying Pysanky again this year! Is anyone else going to give it a try?

Hi there! I've been off the map for a while so I need to catch up on your!
I love these eggs, but the technique looks so intimidating. I'm really tempted to give it a try, though. The lady in the video has some gorgeous designs!
