Colorful Easter eggs

In many European countries Easter is associated mostly with decorating chicken eggs. Colorful blown eggs may be painted, pasted over, scratched or decorated with the use of wax. There are many techniques of decorating eggs and many regional patterns traditionally placed on Easter eggs – among other types there are dyed eggs, scratched eggs, hemstitched eggs or eggs that are pasted over. Easter eggs that come from Ukraine are among the most popular and recognizable. They have intense, rather dark colors and are richly ornamented: floral and geometrical patterns are dominant. The usual background is contrasted by the color of elaborate patterns and it is an intentional procedure – an egg is sometimes dyed a few times, each time a new pattern is applied with the use of wax. When the wax is removed we obtain delicate ornaments.
