A basket of colorful Sorbian Easter Eggs at an Easter Egg market in Seligenstadt, Germany. The Sorbs are a slavic minority living in eastern Germany near Hoyerswerda. The Easter Egg markets are popular places during the Easter season, and collecting eggs can be an expensive hobby
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!
