Vacation Painting Project

Besides the cottage, the painting project I really enjoyed the last week of vacation was the Pysanky or Ukranian Easter Eggs I made. I started these a few years ago when I made personalized ones and used them as "place cards" for family members coming to Easter dinner. The problem was they kept walking off with guests, so each year I have to make more.

This year, rather than just trying to guess at how to make them, I finally bought a book that showed me the first steps. They are fun to do but require time and patience as well as the ability to "think backwards." I still have the personalized ones to do but here's what I've done so far.
