Black beeswax is the prime ingredient to creating fine art Ukrainian Pysanky!
Beeswax is the only type of wax to use when making Pysanky—Ukrainian Easter Eggs—or other batik style eggs because it's the only kind of wax that sticks to the egg shell. Beeswax has a high melting point that melts cleanly in the kistka without any smoke. This also aids in writing consistent smooth lines.
The kitsky, or wax stylus, is the essential tool for Ukrainian Easter egg decorating.
Our stainless steel precision tips are the secret to creating fine, even, smooth and consistent lines of melted beeswax when making Ukrainian Easter eggs or other egg art. You'll find that "accidental blobs" happen a lot less frequently than they do with brass or copper-tipped kistky.
Our kistky create breathtaking lines that would make even an experienced artist jump for joy!
