No, but DS and I took a class last spring on the process and loved it.... but man was it time consuming and detailed. We actually had the wax holder and burned it over the open flame drip by drip onto the egg, layer by layer after dipping the egg into the special dyes the instructor brought. Then we re-melted the wax over the same flame. Each egg was a 2 hr class....They were beautiful and I have some great pictures and memories but I dont have that type of patience right now.

So neat, and I just watched "unwrapped" on the food network- they did an easter show, and had Pysanky on there. Maybe you can find that segment online, as it was pretty cool to see how it was done.
