    Navy Bean: Ukrainian Eggs

    Pysanky!!! Ukrainian eggs - I actually bought the kit to make these (okay, to make crude wannabes), but I haven't used it yet. I need to do that.

    Pinner said: my ukrainian grandmother taught me how to make eggs like this when I was young. use melted wax to draw a design on the eggs, allow it to dry, then dip the egg into dye. once finished dying, allow to dry, then warm the wax (she did this over a candle flame), and wipe the wax off with a towel. if you blow the egg insides out beforehand, then the eggs will last forever!

    Pysanky EggsPysanky Eggs The inspiration for this Easter egg dying technique comes from Pysanky, the ancient Ukrainian folk art of wax-and-dye egg decorating. To create these designs, stick metal pins in pencil erasers, dip the pinheads in melted wax, and draw wax patterns on hard-boiled eggs before dyeing them.

    Vibrant Easter Eggs, dyed naturally. Thought this would also be a good teaching tool for history...how textiles were dyed long ago. Maybe even try to dye different materials like cotton fabric, yarn, etc with the the natural dyes (science).
