The Ukrainian art of decorating eggs using a unique wax-resist and dye process called "pysanky" dates back to ancient times. Now a generation can learn to create these egg treasures with our kit that contains two "kistky" tools for drawing the linework in wax, a beeswax patty, eight packets of vivid, water-soluble dyes, illustrated instructions, and color photos of finished eggs, all attractively boxed.
For additional sessions of egg decorating, order our set of dye refills. With our DVD How to Decorate Beautiful Ukrainian Easter Eggs, beginners of all ages can learn how to become a pysanky master by following the step-by-step instructions.
The traditional craft of pysanky is even more fun with A Kid's Guide to Decorating Ukrainian Easter Eggs by Natalie Perchyshyn. This egg-cellent book helps decorators of all ages create beautiful designs.
