Happy Easter!

I’ve been intrigued by pysanka (eggs that are hand painted with hot beeswax, dyed a light color, beeswaxed again, dyed a slightly darker color, over and over until you have the intricate multicolor designs seen above) for years—I’ve even tried it a time or two…unsuccessfully. Leave it to an etsian to master the craft.

Katya of Ukrainian Easter Eggs created the beauties shown here. She even offers a handy video for those wondering how they’re created.
