________________________________________________________________This is my favourite craft, I love making Pysanky, these are done and are waiting several coats of varnish, I put 2 finished varnished ones on top so you could see the difference I dont know if you can tell them apart in this photo, but the varnish really makes them special , to me they have the look of stained glass windows.
I havent made eggs in over a year but I have full intentions of getting back into it, I love the touch of them, the smell of the wax as I work on them, I relax as I make these, my fingers and my brain work in unison to bring out the beauty in the eggs shape, when I hold a white egg and look at it,I imagine what pattern I will make on them, I stick mostly to traditional patterns and symbolism,my fingers ache to make them again, the only thing holding me back is making new dyes, my old ones are yukky now and have to be replaced and its not a small job replacing those dyes, I have more than 20 colors, and its messy to say the least.I just wanted to show you some that were not finished yet, not quite.
This is my canvas of choice, that smooth white shape that feels so good in your hand .Its an easy craft but you must be good with your hands very steady to get those fine lines.Anyone else out there interested in Pysanky??
When I do get back into it I will do a tutorial if anyone wants to see it done.I may even sell some if anyone is also interested in owning one.I could put any symbol on it you wished, one to bring you luck, make you pregnant, have a good harvest,make you well, get married, on and on you get the idea.The Ukrainians believed it was all in the symbols.Its an ancient craft dating far back in history,I am not Ukrainian but I married one and after 38 years, some of it rubbed off!!!
