 Decorating Easter eggs, or Pysanky is a long-standing tradition in Ukraine that dates back thousands of years. The practice of creating these ornate eggs is believed to have originally been a pagan ritual that was later adapted by the Christian church.

The process of making real Pysanky involves using a special tool pysak, also known as kistka, to draw designs onto raw eggs using a wax resist method. The eggs are then dyed in a series of colors with the wax keeping the areas covered from the dye. Once the egg is complete, the wax is melted off to reveal the intricate design underneath. 

Learn or practice your Pysanky skills with these authentic Ukrainian tools and materials.
