Pysanky Part 2
Pysanky from previous years
Happy Easter! Below are some pysanky, Polish Easter eggs, I decorated this week for Easter. It is a Polish Easter tradition to decorate eggs with bee's wax and dye. However, I was disappointed that after laboring over these eggs the color did not stick.
Today at church I spoke to other pysanky decorators and learned that: 1.) Dziadziu and I might need newer dye and 2.) we should wash the eggs with vinegar before applying the wax designs. Next time I am willing to try farm-fresh eggs instead of store-bought ones because all the finished eggs had two-rings around them.
