Green Pysanka Chicken Egg Ornament with ribbon
Pysankas are traditional Ukrainian decorated Easter eggs. With the addition of the ribbon, the Pysankas are transformed to become beautiful ornaments. These single colored ornaments are a modern version of the Pysanka. Each Pysanka is handmade by Anna and her fellow artists using the batik technique of wax-resist dyeing. She heats a beeswax-filled stylus over a candle flame and while using a writing motion applies the molten wax to the egg over the designs that are to remain white. After dyeing the egg she holds it next to a flame to melt the wax, revealing the beautiful design.
Available in red, maroon, dark blue, sky blue, lavender, and green.
Pysankas sold individually.
