Canadian Eggshell Dyes

Real hand-written Ukrainian Easter Eggs (Pysanky) love vivid colours!

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 to a Canadian theme of colours. 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!! 

These are all sold as individual dye packages.  

Use with common white vinegar as per instructions on all colors except Cream Soda Pink and the Cleansing Orange rinse.  

  • #01 Canola Yellow Eggshell Dye
    Quick shop

    This nice bright "Canola Yellow" pysanka dye covers well and does not have an oily feel. Canola Yellow is often the first dye colour used on a pysanka.  

    Found in the beautiful fields of the prairies, the canola flowers shine a magnificent yellow. With our Canola Yellow dye you will be able to capture the same magnificence on the surface of your pysanky.

  • #02 Tofino Sunset Eggshell Dye
    Quick shop

    Tofino Sunset (orange) dye covers the egg well... however please note that our orange dye needs vinegar.  Because it uses vinegar, it is not recommended to use as a wash back dye.

    Tofino, on the western coast of Vancouver Island, is the last part of Canada to see the sun shine everyday. Our Tofino Sunset dye allows you to capture the unwinding beauty of the setting sun across the Pacific Ocean.

    Glowing Hearts is the new name for our Bright Red Pysanky Dye. It truly is a bright brilliant red that is a traditional colour for a Pysanky.

    Heard during the Canadian national anthem, our "glowing hearts" are representative of our passion for our country and our strong Canadian spirit. The emotion and spirit of our national anthem has been embodied in our Glowing Hearts pysanky dye.

  • #04 Orca Black Eggshell Dye
    Quick shop

    Orca Black is often the last and final colour used on a Pysanka designed eggshell.

    The Orca is one of the most menacing sea creatures in the Arctic Ocean and northern Pacific Ocean, and their apex predator status earns them the title of Killer Whale. Interestingly enough, Orcas are actually a type of dolphin, rather than whales, and it is actually the largest species of dolphin. To celebrate the orcas, we named our black after the most elegant and fearsome creature of the arctic.

  • #06 Niagara Blue Eggshell Dye
    Quick shop

    Niagara Blue Eggshell Dye is our original Blue dye that has proven to be a strong blue for all your pysanky creations.  Because this pysanka dye colour has lasted the test of time, we gave it the new Canadian name of Niagara Falls.

    The mighty Niagara Falls are one of Canada’s greatest natural achievements, artistically dividing Canada from the United States. Our Niagara Blue dye contains the essence of breathtaking beauty taken directly from the relentlessly forceful falls themselves.

  • #07 Cream Soda Pink Eggshell Dye
    Quick shop

    Please note that when mixing, pink does not need white vinegar.

    Cream Soda Pink is vibrant and powerful which is a surprise because it doesn't take vinegar to make it adhere to an eggshell. It goes against the grain of Pysanky artists to trust that the dye will work without vinegar but it does... and the colour is beyond beautiful. It's definitely worth a try.  

    When Canadians think back to their childhoods, chances are there is a memory of soda in there somewhere. When it comes to Cream Soda, pink colouring and labelling is a uniquely Canadian concept, (it's clear everywhere else) and what better represents Canadian culture than pink cream soda.

  • #12 Beaver Brown Eggshell Dye
    Quick shop

    Beaver Brown is a must for trypillian designed pysanky. A white or brown egg, beaver brown and orca black is a nice combination.

    Featured on the standard nickel of Canada, the beaver is an important Canadian symbol, as well as a part of our history. One of the reasons Canada exists today is because the beaver was hunted for the fur trade, causing North American settlement as a whole. Beavers are also known as the builders of nature, making them representative of Canada as a peacemaking and peacekeeping nation.

  • #13 Yukon Gold Eggshell Dye
    Quick shop

    Yukon Gold is a great first colour for your pysanka. It's a richer yellow than Canola Yellow and brings a true depth to your pysanky designs. Though it isn't a true gold, it looks like it has specks of gold in the dye bath. This dye tends to need a new mix every year but at $1.50 a package it's worth it's weight in gold. ;)

    In days of old, the Canadian world went wild for an incredible discovery in the Yukon. When a gold nugget was found in the Klondike River in 1896, prospectors from across the nation travelled to the Yukon in search of fortune. We have commemorated one of the greatest economically-charged migration in Canadian history by making the colour sought out by the brave and bold available to all.

  • #20 Viking Violet Eggshell Dye
    Quick shop

    This new “Viking Violet” got its name because it is beyond powerful! It dyes in seconds without a film and has a bit of a metallic look to it. It would seem that it could manage without a varnish but for protection, it will still need one.  Sometimes the sheen will go away after varnishing.

  • Cleansing Orange Eggshell Dye
    Quick shop

    Cleansing orange is NOT part of our 20-colour eggshell dye kit as it is NOT used to colour your eggshell. Instead it is used to help wash back some of the stronger colours to allow for new colours to "take" on the egg. 

    You do not add vinegar to this orange.

    I put the cleansing orange in a plastic container with lid to keep on hand and to make sure it looks different than the eggshell dyes.  Washing back darker dyes will change the colour of this orange, as it will slowly get contaminated with the darker dyes.  Because of this, you will want to replace this cleansing dye often.
