Afterwards, the «writing» of specific motives in yellow starts; the red color follows and the black or another dark color comes in the end. Eventually, the egg is dried by slight warming and the wax lines are wiped off.
However, today the craft has been revived and many Moldovan families paint eggs with their children during the Easter season. The craft is particularly alive and well in the village of Trebujeni, which is part of the Orhei Vechi archeological complex. Here many women and girls know how to paint Easter eggs and they welcome visitors to learn about and experience for themselves this traditional art form. Another locality with a strong tradition in painting Easter eggs is Lalova village in the Rezina district, where visitors can also take part in Easter egg painting. The master class is organized at the rural pension “Hanul lui Hanganu” [link to rural pensions].
The National Museum of Ethnography and Natural History [Link to museum] in Chisinau organizes several exhibitions and workshops each year, where craftswomen demonstrate this craft.
