Eggs, painted in one color, are calledkrashenkami, and painted with ornaments or plot patterns - pysanka. Classical pysanka is a complex way of painting Easter eggs, where wax, steel feathers or hooks, as well as special paints are used. But along with traditional staining methods, there is a large number of simpler and more original methods to paint an egg. Even the kids will be able to paint the Easter eggs with watercolor, gouache or markers. You can also use watercolor pencils, corrector, markers, gel pens and other standard writing tools. Painting and painting eggs for the main holiday of Christians Easter is a long tradition. One version of the legend says that when the Holy Mary Magdalene came to the emperor Tiberius and told about the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, the emperor did not believe and said that it is just as impossible as the fact that the chicken egg will turn red. At the same moment the chicken egg, which he held in his hands, turned red in confirmation of the news of Mary Magdalene. Other versions refer to the origin of the tradition even before pre-Christian times.
