Red Cross Chicken Egg Pysanky
This unique chicken egg pysanky was decorated with a wax batik process. The red cross is for salvation, the willows are for hope and the wavy line for everlasting life. It comes with a clear acrylic stand or an ornament hanger can be attached. The egg is blown out and very light. It measures about 3 inches tall by 2.5 inches wide.
As always, each pysanka I create is made with love and prayers.
Each pysanka is coated with varnish to protect it from water damage. However, the varnish will not protect the egg from UV light or breakage. It is best to display your pysanka out of direct sunlight. Since the pysanka is fragile, it is also advised to place it in a safe place.
If you find the egg is “slipping” in the stand, use a small amount of wax (such as paraffin or candle wax) around the rim of the stand. This will keep the egg in place and it won’t harm the pysanka.
