Kalyna Red Tip: Sometimes covers too strong and will not let another colour cover it. If this is the case, wash back with ivory dish soap (or other dish soap), dip back in a vinegar bath to prepare the eggshell to take another dye and then dye again.
Kalyna Red represents happiness, hope, joy & fun. Of course being a true rich red, it also symbolizes love and passion and now in the Christian era it often represents the blood of Christ and his passion. This is why most Easter Baskets have at least one red pysanka in the basket to be blessed.
Symbolic of beauty and family, among other things, Kalyna is an ethnic and national symbol of Ukraine. The Kalyna berries are known for their gloriously red hue. Our Kalyna Red dye replicates the bold vibrance of this pure red colour.
