Egg-vidence of the Hand? Terrible.

April 6, 2010

My friend Tanya taught me how to make Ukranian Easter eggs, called Pasenki Pysanky. We sat down and made a few before Easter. It is a wax-resist dying process. First you draw on the egg with melted wax:

Sorry it's a little blurry. This is Tanya's Hawaii themed egg.

Then you dunk it in dye of whatever color you want:

This one is red.

Then after doing this a bunch of times with different colors, you remove the wax by melting it off.

you gotta melt it, then wipe it, then melt some more, then wipe some more

And at the very end you end up with something, like or unlike these:

warm colors egg

giant squid egg

Super fun! Thanks Tanya!

    So pretty! Alyssa will be 3 1/2 next Easter, think she’ll be coordinated enough to make one of those?! hehe

      If she’s good with working around candles, she could do it. Otherwise she could do the same with a white crayon maybe? And she will get to have pink and purple arms! : )

        Yeah I recently heard about the white crayon thing, We’ll probably try it next year. 🙂

      Hi Mr. Coco! Good to hear from you. Yeah, it just isn’t the same without Luke and Sabrina down here. We miss seeing you guys too.
      I think you can subscribe to the blog by using the RSS feed button on my page, but you might have to ask Luke how to do it. : )
      Hopefully we’ll get to see all the Cocos and Fousts again soon!
