Description
 
The art of decorating eggs is an old Ukrainian craft which as a lot of followers nowadays. For centuries people have been writing ancient symbols on the bird's egg with beeswax. Substantial research on Easter eggs was conducted as far back as the 19th century. Back then researchers pointed out that synthetic dyes were superseding natural ones. In modern times synthetic dyes are commonly used to make pysanky.
Lubov Ktitorova and Tetiana Vlenenko have been making pysanky for many years now. In their early days they used aniline dyes but later on they discovered natural dyes. So for the last 14 years they have been experimenting with plants in search for ones that could dye the eggshell. Searching for information from the experiences of their predecessors, testing medicinal plants and getting familiar with the process of dyeing textiles has allowed Luba and Tetiana to gradually collect the material to write this book.
In this book the two artists share natural dye recipes based on fresh and dried raw materials, they include a table with plants used for dyeing and show plant's reactions to mordants which help to extract dyestuffs from the dyebath and speed up the dyeing time. In the course of this research a large collection of natural dyed eggs was made. Half of that collection (100 pages worth) is presented in this book, showing both traditional and original designs. Ukrainian text with a short English Summary in the back.
