Ukranian Egg Decorating - otherwise known as Pysanka - is an approach to dying and decorating eggs that kind of kicks our dip and dye version in the booty. In a nutshell, you use a Batik wax resisting method to create your design, heating tiny wax sticks over candlelight to then apply carefully to the egg's surface. Once the wax is dry, you dip in pretty jewel toned hues and the dye catches on every surface not previously waxed allowing your design to shine through in a pretty white. You can dye them in a single color or you can use a spoon to mix up the the colors and only apply one hue to a certain area of the egg. Here are a few tips for you to make sure you don't have any messy experimentation eggs!
