A Kistka is a wax sylus for beeswax. You fill the reserviour with beeswas and heat under a candle flame. When it's hot enough, the beeswax flows out of the tip like ink out of a pen. Then you write your designs on your Ukrainian Easter Egg

Tthe kistka can be held in any way that is comfortable, but most people will hold it as they do a pencil, with their fingers just above the barrel for more control. practice holding a kistka at right angles to an egg, with the tip doing the drawing.

Pssst... the secret you absolutely want to know!
UE Candle Heated Kistky use the same precision pen tips as our coveted Electric Kistky. This means you can create beautiful Ukrainian eggs, pysanky or batik and other egg art as gifts all season and not just Easter, no matter your budget.
Our stainless steel precision tips are the secret to creating fine, even, smooth and consistent lines of melted beeswax when making Ukrainian Easter eggs or other egg art. You'll find that "accidental blobs" happen a lot less frequently than they do with brass or copper-tipped kistky.
Our kistky create breathtaking lines that would make even an experienced artist jump for joy!
Safety First: Remember that the kistka sleeve and writing tip is very hot when heated and combined with the hot beeswax, it can leave a severe burn. Always have a safe place to hold your kistka when not in use. Try our silicone kistky holders. They work perfectly for this.
