Ukrainian Easter Eggs

This weekend Jessica taught us how to make Ukrainian Easter Eggs. They look super complex and it does take a while, but it's not as hard as it looks. It is basically several layers of putting wax on and then dying the egg different colors from lightest to darkest ending with black. As you put more wax on it covers the lighter colors and keeps them on the egg while dying the rest of the egg darker colors. Here are a few of the eggs that we made. You use a little tool that holds melted wax (pictured below) to draw the wax on. Mine aren't prefect by any means, but it sure was a fun way to spend a few hours.
