Once you learn how to write Pysanky (Ukrainian Easter Eggs) a whole new world of art, meditation, prayer and expression opens up for you. You know you've reached this level when you find yourself excited to write more than just a couple Pysanky and can't wait to try new designs and colours.
The "I Love Egging Pysanky Kit" from Ukrainian EggCessories gives you the tools to explore 13 different colour dyes and play around with different thicknesses of wax lines with three different tipped traditional candle kistky, along with enough wax to make a dozen eggs. If you love to experiment and explore variations with your pysanky, then the "I Love Egging" will be a worthwhile investment.
Here is everything you need to tackle the most intricate designs!
"Mama!" my son shrieked with glee, "I drew a circle around the egg, straight and same width, without breaking the egg! Mama! Come see!"
The joy a mother and child reach with a bit of practice is worth every second. Sure it took him many tries, and now we've come to love our family time together as we prepare unique and colorful Pysanky for Easter. This joy surpasses anything we do together - unless it's eating fresh homemade perogies! Same joy!
Gather friends and family around the table for an unforgettable eggsperience!
What's in it?
This pysanky kit contains:
Below you will find more information about what dye colours are available, what designs you might want to write on your egg along with the meanings and symbolisms to consider. This is where the fun begins!
Ukrainian EggCessories added seven new colours increasing our eggshell dyes from 13 to 20 colours. These are seven 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.
