During Holy Week, we made pysanky for the first time. We were happy with our first attempts at this intricate art, but know there is a lot of room for improvement. When we used the candle to remove the wax, some of the eggs looked a little dark in places, leading us to discover that the best way to get the wax off is in the oven. Now, we want to learn how to keep our lines straight. In the interim, we need to varnish what we made.
Bernadette decided to draw the tomb and the horse; rather than making a traditional Ukrainian Easter Egg. I thought both of her eggs turned out well.
