Beeswax

The prime ingredient to creating fine art Ukrainian Pysanky!

Beeswax is the only type of wax to use when making Pysanky—Ukrainian Easter Eggsor other batik style eggs because it's the only kind of wax that sticks to the egg shell.  Beeswax has a high melting point that melts cleanly in the kistka without any smoke. This also aids in writing consistent smooth lines.

Traditional kistky usually use a natural beeswax because the soot of the candle will turn the beeswax black, making your lines easy to see on the egg. This soot often plugs up the kistka which has to be cleaned out before it can be used again.

However, Ukrainian EggCessories' Candle Heated Kistky are very efficient so this doesn't happen with them. When using our kistky, it is recommended to use the black honeycomb beeswax so that you are able to see your lines.

The beeswax for our honeycomb beeswax sheets comes from Canada and has shown to be the best beeswax that works with our electric and candle traditional kistka tips. The beeswax sheets make it easy to fill the reservoir of the kistka. Just heat up the kistka and then drag the sheet of wax down the side of the reservoir until full or pull the reservoir of the kistka up the side of the sheet of wax. It's as easy as that.

For best results, please consider only the honeycomb beeswax for our electric Kistky.
