    Pysanka Loves Colour

    Pysanka Loves Colour

    Ukrainian EggCessories added four new colours increasing our eggshell dyes from 13 to 18 colours. These are 5 new ways to add a lot more colour combinations to your pysanka designs.

    Then... we came up with this super fun idea on renaming all the dyes with a Canadian theme. Why'd we do that?

    Well, because we are Canadian. And these are the only dyes that are mixed and packaged in Canada and we're pretty proud of that.

    Plus Canadians are known to be light hearted and fun... so why not let our dyes be the same. 

    We want you to have just as much fun with the eggshell dyes, trusting that the dyes have been tested and re-mixed to give you the best coverage and brightness. Our dyes are very comparable with all the other pysanka dye companies so jump in, grab some dyes and have fun!! 

    Each colour has a meaning too. To help you choose your colours, see the chart of different pysanky and colour information below. 

    Visit our Eggshell Dye Collection Page to pick your dyes now.
