Pysanky are Ukrainian Easter eggs and can be stunningly beautiful works of art. They are made by "drawing" on eggs with hot wax and dyeing the eggs a succession of colors.

This book has information of what is the art of Sorbian egg art but not much on how to do the art. It is very small with few pages,not good for a beginner.

What others are saying. Many Slavic ethnic groups, including Belarusians, Bulgarians, Carpatho-Rusyns, Croations, Czechs, Poles, Serbians, Slovaks, Slovenes, Sorbians (Wendish) and Ukrainians decorate eggs for Easter. Many of the names derive from the Slavic root "pisa" which relates to writing

The great egret (Ardea alba), also known as the common egret, large egret, or (in the Old World) great white egret or great white heron is a large, widely distributed egret, with four subspecies found in Asia, Africa, the Americas, and southern Europ.

The great egret (Ardea alba), also known as the common egret, large egret, or (in the Old World) great white egret or great white heron is a large, widely distributed egret, with four subspecies found in Asia, Africa, the Americas, and southern Europe. Distributed across most of the tropical and warmer temperate regions of the world, it builds tree nests in colonies close to water.

Turn ordinary eggshells into works of art with traditional designs! For centuries, in countries like Russia and Czechoslovakia, people have revered the egg as a symbol of life, fertility, and love, and they have developed an array of artistic possibilities--egg blowing, wax resist, drilling, and découpage--for beautifying it. Choose from chicken, duck, ostrich, goose, and quail eggs to get a variety of sizes; see how creative you can be; and then show them off in floral centerpieces, as ornaments and package trims, and more. For a distinctive mobile that will have everyone talking, dye some eggs, wax emboss them with stars and rosettes, and hang them up. Or, fill an Easter basket with varnished eggs threaded with colorful ribbon. With tricks of the trade, including how to start over if you make a mistake, this is the definitive guide to a timeless craft.

Just got the book and was thrilled with it. I've tried Pyanski and just made a big mess and ruined a lot of shells. I especially liked the idea of using inks, paints, and varnushes since I have already painted some eggs that turned out beautifully. I just wish it went into more depth in what inks and varnishes they used so I don't have to go by trial and error myself since the products aren't cheap and blowing eggs isn't the easiest. If they had at least given a few examples that would be helpful (or included products used in the back) Does anyone have suggestions for varnishes that I could start with?

This is an awesome book but I expected more traditional patterns. The book explains the traditions and has some patterns and techniques in it but then it goes on to give actual projects for displaying your creations like floral arrangements and mobiles. Most books on this topic focus on Ukrainian style and heritage but this had a different flavor. It was an excellent book and a great value for someone who is new to this art form and wants to do some arts and crafts projects with batiked eggs. Pictures are wonderfully done.

Great book for learning the drop and drag method.

I do pysanky and the cover looked like the pysanky designs. But when i looked at the rest of the book, I was a little disappointed that it did not have very much to do with pysanky. It's a great book for other egg decorating techniques, but not for what I need.

Nice pictures of many drop pull designs. Not too many actual instructions of the designs. Mostly projects using finished eggs but still a reference for design ideas.
Jum
This is a great guide for salvaging pysanky eggs gone wrong. It adds a whole new dimension to egg decorating and turns them into something beautiful
Gaudiker
A great little book on decorating eggs.
As we have had extra eggs to play with, I have enjoyed doing the different styles.
Not every egg has to be Ukranian of for Easter. The different styles give beginning and expert egg artists lots of ideas to build upon.
I have enjoyed having it in my library, and go back for review it every time I am decorating eggs.
The traditional eggs I grew up with...delightful
