I have been immersed in Pysanky classes for about 2 weeks now. Usually not all students will finish at the same time. You have your ones who race to the finish, those who try to take as much time as they can, and then everyone in between.
As the kids finish their Pysanky egg they then can complete this pastel resist paper egg.
This is Grade 1.
- white paper, use heavy sketch or wc
- pencil and eraser
- oil pastels
- disk tempera paint
Pysanky design in pencil. You want fairly large shapes.
Keep some areas of the egg uncolored.
You can also outline the egg shape.
Pysanky in process.
This is Grade 2.
And even though I'm teaching Pysanky all day long I come home and work on my own eggs with my kids as well.
I'll have some completed Pysanky pictures for you Friday. In the meantime why not do a large pastel resist paper egg!
See you soon.
