    pysanky (Ukrainian Easter eggs), traditional designs

  • Orlff

    Ukranian Easter Eggs - A pysanka (plural: pysanky) is a Ukrainian Easter egg, decorated with traditional Ukrainian folk designs using a wax-resist (batik) method. The word pysanka comes from the verb pysaty, “to write”, as the designs are not painted on, but written with beeswax.

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!

How odd...the random placement of traditional roses topped with flowers and leaves makes this egg kinda look Japanese.

pysanky {I was introduced to decorated eggs - actual eggs & ones from porcelain, alabaster, glass, etc.- while in Italy & visiting Germany! I LOVE the idea! Much more artistic than just plunking a hard boiled egg in beet juice & vinegar (homemade version of Easter egg dyes or foodcoloring! :)

The art of pysanky. So much prettier and way more fun than simple dying of eggs during Lent/Easter.

Pysankapysanky A note on pronunciation, despite what you may have heard on television, a supplier of pysanky tools or from an instructor in a local class, “Pysanka” is correctly pronounced “Pih-sahn-kah” with the plural “Pih-sahn-kih”. All with short vowels. The term “pysanky” is not, never was, nor will it ever be correctly pronounced “pie-SAN-kee or pizz-an-ki”
