“Ukrainian Pysanky is the ancient craft of waxing and dying on a variety of eggs. On this goose egg, the beeswax is applied with a mini funnel called a kistka. I used three dye baths. First, I waxed the white areas and then put the egg in the red dye. I waxed the red areas and put it in the blue. I waxed over the blue and dipped it in the final color, the black. In the end, the wax is removed with a candle and a varnish is applied. The process is similar to batik on fabric but my blurb applies to the egg in the photo.” Lynn Walters
