"Felicia demonstrating Pisanki"

I enjoy sharing my folk art at festivals where I demonstrate the method of doing pysanky using a candle, beeswax, and dye.  I meet a lot of people who remember their "Babci" doing them with a straight pin and melted wax.  I taught myself how to do egg decorating with beeswax when my husband Jake bought me some How-to books.  I remember my cousin Victoria's Godmother making them and was so fascinated.  Little did I know that someday I would be making pysanky for 36 years!  (And teaching other people how to make them, also!)
