Pysanky -- Ukrainian Art of Egg Decorating

Pysanka is a Ukrainian Easter egg. Pysanky is a form of wax-resist dyeing using a kind of stylus called a kistka. Some kistkas are dipped into the hot wax, and others consist of a cone filled with hot wax that feeds the nib of the stylus. Kistkas are available at most major craft stores.

Red Pysanka are exchanged by the Ukrainian church as they celebrate Easter. This tradition of the Eastern Church of Jesus Christ is the earliest connection of dyed eggs to the Easter celebration.
