Ukrainian Easter Eggs

I’ve always wanted to try my hand at making Ukrainian Easter eggs. The process is a fascinating one as the design is created by using a special tool designed to hold beeswax and is heated by a candle. With this instrument you draw your design and then dip a blown out egg in a dye and repeat the process over and over, adding layers of wax and color. When finished, the eggs are covered in sooty wax and looks a mess, but gentle heating and removing of the wax reveals an intricate and colorful design. Here are few eggs that were my first attempts this past Easter.
