Ukrainian Easter Eggs

07Apr10

These eggs are a tradition in my family, although we are not Ukrainian. They are made by applying wax to an egg and dying it in stages. The wax acts as a resist and preserves the colour underneath it until it is melted and wiped  away.

The above designs are my own and are not very consistent with traditional styles. Traditional patterns are extremely intricate and require a very steady hand; something I haven’t had the the patience for for a long time. They are worth the trouble though.

Here is a link to a picture of some real Ukrainian eggs.

      Thanks again 🙂
      The best part about these is how simple the process is. There is also a very analogue feel to the product. I encourage you to give it a try!
