Oooh! Got it.

Finally! My favoritest egg ever.


And a very weird one where the colors got all screwed up:


And finally, the Easter tree in all its very breakable glory:





  1. Wow, Dv, those two are awesome. The first is absolutely gorgeous…and the second is really cool, even if the colors did get funky. I like! 🙂 You did a great job this year!

    And I see my Starry Night egg on the tree!

  4. Absolutely beautiful, and unlike anything I’ve ever seen. Personally, I love the greens in the second egg; to me it doesn’t look at all screwed up. Such talent! 😀

    I know you wrote earlier about how you do the coloring, and I’m going to go back and read it. If you were inclined, it would be great if you’d write a sort of tutorial on your technique, because it looks like the sort of thing my family would really get into.

  5. Thanks Max!

    1) Currently collecting info for that trip of yours.

    2) Perhaps I will put together a FAQ and guide for doing the eggs, though honestly, a quick google search for “pysanky” will get you much better results from people way more talented than I am.

    It’s without a doubt a GREAT family thing to do, though beware, if you get as into as I do, you may start cursing your family members for nudging the table, walking too roughly or speaking too loud.

    And thanks for the compliments! 🙂

  6. Families that curse each other on the day of the resurrection are families that care.

  8. Wow – amazing!!

    My girls and I dyed 6 eggs with regular old dye and I was just happy when it was over. What patience and ability and lack of small children you must have! 😉

    Thanks for sharing those!

  9. Wow! FABULOUS! I love them!

    I’ve been checking back here like a psychotic stalker just WAITING for the photos. I can die happy now. 😉

    I love the tree. I’m suddenly struck with intense sadness that I’m completly out of eggs (though I’m certain my offspring are thankful that they won’t have to eat scrambled eggs for dinner).

    An FAQ on how to do the eggs would be grand.

  11. I know I’m late on the comment, but I hope you’ll forgive…

    I used to make those, back in the day when I grew up in an Eastern European community in Upstate NY… Try finding supplies in NC… *mourns the lack of Ukrainian Egg supplies*
