I do a Ukrainian egg dying process called "pysanky". It's done with layers of wax alternating with dipping the egg in different colored dyes. I usually make them as Christmas ornaments and give them to family and friends during the holidays, but I've done them for Easter and other occasions too. I've added a couple pics below.

I like to take pics of the finished eggs because most of them I don't keep. Here are some past Christmas ornaments:

Here are some that are still in progress:

Just checked out Miss Prissy's eggs - beautiful! I'd love to know what kind of paint she uses. Are you out there Miss Prissy?

Thanks! Years ago, when I quit smoking, I had to find something to occupy my hands - this definitely helped!

Wow -- blefky -- impressive! I tried pysanka and it was a dismal failure. I just don't have the steady hand needed, and I found it gave me headaches. I still have all the dyes and kistky and wax and I'm going to let the kids mess around with it for Easter this year -- who knows, maybe one of them will have a knack for it!
