history of the kistka
- As I know some of you write pysanky and have investigated traditional historic techniques,
I wonder if I might "pick your brains"! I'm working on an article about the "evolution of the
kistka" for the next issue of my pysanky newsletter. Friends have filled me in pretty well
on modern developments, especially the delrin (plastic) handled and electric kistky. What
I'm especially hoping to find is more info on the traditional copper funnel kistka and its
precursors. I don't know if anyone has researched and written about this or not, especially
in English (or French or German in a pinch).
