A big thank you to Donna of MyOBT for her article about these gorgeous folk artworks made on eggshells.

I was looking for something to post on Easter, and I came across the Ukranian art of Pysanky (A.K.A. Pysanka). Typically done on wooden or blown-out eggs, the art form uses a wax-resist technique, similar to that used to create batik patterns. The name Pysanky comes from the Ukranian word for write, because the traditional folk designs are written on the eggs with beeswax rather than painted on.

I really enjoyed these designs, and I hope you do, too. Have a happy Easter!
