Wondering what to do to create that special Easter egg? A few years ago I got a bit obsessed with Ukranian Easter eggs. They took loads of time, but resulted in some very attractive eggs that would be memorable to any ovorecipient.
After blowing out the eggs, I had a very nice omelet with garlic from the garden. Over a period of a few days, I made about a half dozen eggs, each with individual designs dyed onto the surface of the shell. It was a nice way to spend the days leading up to Easter. The other day I saw one of the eggs on my parents’ table as part of their holiday setup. Now I wish I had made more.
Here are some instructions from Learn Pysanky:
Give it a try and show us your eggies in the MAKE Flickr pool.

My friend Steve offers some free pysanky paper models on his Web site:
You know, for those (like me) less adept with wax and paint and such. :-)
My friend Eve is a master of Fine Art Pysanky. If you are interested, you should visit her site http://eveseggs.com/ for techniques and a gallery of her eggsceptional work. (Sorry for the very bad pun)
Looks like a wax soldering iron, to me!
Not to be picky but it is Ukrainian Easter eggs not Ukranian and it is Pysanky not Pyasnky.
