A pysanka is an egg decorated with traditional folk designs using a wax-resist method. The word pysanka comes from the verb pysaty, "to write" or "to in scribe", as the designs are not painted on, but written with beeswax.
This photo shows intermediate students decorating their eggs with Ms Parker using the beeswax. Below is a photo of psankas showing where the beeswax is removed (shows white). When they are finished, we will put up a photo of their own eggs.
