Pysanky

I've been looking for alternative ways of painting eggs and I've always been very interested in crafts and folk art. I stumbled on this Ukranian technique which I really like. It's a form of batik; drawing with wax on layers of paint. I think my style of drawing would lend itself perfectly for this way of decorating.
Recently I purchased a Pysanky kit on the internet and can't wait to start experimenting with it. I've collected lots of goose eggs from our geese over the years and breeding season has just begun so my supply will expand over the course of the next weeks.

Once I've got a few eggs done in this batik style I'll post them here. Stay tuned!
