It’s been a busy couple of days, with kids and grandkids all here…
But they’ve all left now.
Silence reigns and a neglected English Shepherd lays at my feet!
Easter Sunday just might be a smidge quiet.
While they were here, I did, with Victoria’s help, manage to make you a pysanky video for your Easter Sunday morning enjoyment…
You can easily see the progression of this wax resist process.
When finally covered in dye and wax, the egg is blown, then the beeswax is melted in a low oven and wiped off.
Each design I took from Jan Brett’s book, The Easter Egg.
While mine don’t match exactly, I still believe the grandsons will enjoy reading this and matching the eggs to the book!
So, to W., W., and Q., Happy Easter!
(and to you, too!)

Is there only one hole for blowing the egg? I thought you made a hole in each end and blew. What was the contraption you used to do it?
However you do it, they are beautiful and you have a steady hand!
Where or how, did you learn to do this beautiful art-craft? How long does a finished egg last? They certainly are unique works of art!
