This style of Easter egg in Ukraine is called dryapanka, and in Poland it is called skrobanki or drapanka. It is a chicken egg and was created by scratching the egg with a sharp instrument. This is the same technique that was used to create Easter eggs over 2,000 years ago. To create the egg, I first empty out the contents of the egg. The egg is then dyed a solid color, and I scratch or etch the design into the egg using a sharp instrument. The egg is then coated with varnish to protect it.
