My 48-Triangle Project:You've seen my 48-triangle series using all 27 Ukrainian Eggcessories dyes at the retreat or on the Facebook page, I'll talk about how this adventure catapulted me out of beginner frustration, what I learned about dyes and colours, and how this game changer made learning more complicated divisions easier and faster.
Twee's Freezer Method:How to save an empty egg that's blotchy, not taking colour, or bleeding dye and ruining your pysanka.
Duck Eggs Aren't as Fragile as We Think:Learn how to get duck eggs to soak up the dye and produce more brilliant colours. Duck eggs aren't as fragile as people have been telling us, learn all the techniques and results from my intensive six-month experiment.
NEW Dye Colours from Ukrainian Eggcessories:My six-month experiment on combining existing Ukrainian Eggcessories dyes has created some exciting new colours.

I am a pysankarko who returned to writing pysanky over two years ago. I bought my first pysanky book in 1991 and taught myself to write. After a year or so, I took a two-decade-long break then rediscovered pysanky during the pandemic. I've been writing eggs ever since and do so year round.
