Rob writes – “Pysanky (Ukrainian Easter eggs) are really fun to make. You need a special tool, the kistka, which you can get from Ukrainian stores, but you could probably make your own relatively easily- maybe a bit of brass shim stock rolled into a little funnel, and attached to a stick. The moment when you wipe off the layers of wax and dye and reveal the egg after hours of work is usually a thrill, unless you messed up…If you don’t want to do the traditional designs, I’m thinking schematics or hot-rod pinstripe designs would work well too. “Link.
