The delicate nature of real eggs is what makes Pysanky eggs all the more unbelievable. If you've never seen them, you are in for a wonderful treat.Pysanky are part of an ancient Ukrainian tradition of decorating whole eggshells with elaborate geometric patterns and pictures. Although it may seem improbable, these eggs are real. Pysanky are made by puncturing the shell in two places and carefully removing the liquid contents of the egg by blowing them out. Using the hot wax pen the artists writes a pattern, dips the pysanky into dyes, lets then dry and continues the process several times, producing colorful overlapping patterns on the shell of the pysanky eggs. Folk cultures around the world consider the pysanky a symbol of springtime and rebirth. It's a wonderful gift of life with a deep meaning!

Made using a wax resist (batik) method. Beeswax was scooped into the stylus and heated in a candle flame. The molten wax was applied to the white egg with a writing motion; any bit of shell covered with wax sealed to remain white.
The egg was dyed and more wax applied. Bits of shell covered with wax remained that color. After the final color, the wax was removed by holding the egg next to the flame and gently melting it.

Part of an ancient Ukrainian tradition, decorating these fragile pieces is a time consuming and delicate process that requires creativity and much patience, and most people who see these beauties don't believe the are real eggs until they are told of the technique to get them there. The first step in the making of pysanky eggs is to puncture the shell of an egg in two separate places then carefully and slowly blow the liquid contents of each egg out.
Once this is done, the artist takes a hot wax pen and draws a pattern on the shell. Because the shells are so fragile, this part of the process is rather difficult. After the design is drawn on each egg, it is then dipped into various dyes. In between each dipping, the eggs must dry before they can be drawn on further. This produces beautiful, overlapping patterns on the eggs that are almost impossible to believe. This Easter egg decoration technique is considered by many different folk cultures around the world as a symbol of springtime and rebirth. So the decorations have a much deeper meaning than simply being pretty to look at on your Easter Sunday dinner table. They have a cherished history, and are often thought of as being a glorious symbol of the chick emerging from what may seem like a lifeless shell, as well as the grass growing and flowers blooming from the cold, hard winter ground.
