Wow!  These are amazing!  Where did you learn how to do these?

 

My sister saw them in a National Geographic magazine years ago and admired them. Then she found a class where a Ukrainian woman was teaching how to make pysanky. Then she found a cookbook (Time-Life International series, Russia) with pysanky on the cover:

My sister taught me and I bought the cookbook also. Over the years, we have bought several books with instructions and patterns, and we've make up some of our own patterns.

On that page some books are at the top. If you scroll clear to the bottom, you will see the National Geographic magazine that got my sister started.

We also taught my sister's daughter, and sometimes all three of us decorate eggs at the same time.

There. Their. They're not the same.

That's really very nice that the three of you can do this together - very special in my book :)

It's way more fun to do together. Then you can show one partly made to someone else and say "do you think I should put dots around this?" and then when we finish one, we can immediately show it to the others and get instant gratification "Oh, that's beautiful!"  icon_smile.gif

 

If you search for "making pysanky" in Google Images, you will see several pictures of people sitting around a table, all working on an egg.
