These are not the kistky you will find in Ukraine. Before the age of plastics, the traditional kistka was more often used.  It has a wood handle and a rolled metal cup to hold the beeswax.  However, before you decide to go entirely traditional, please consider these modern marvels of the space age. They are quite easy for the beginner to manage and obtain good results with a minimum amount of frustration. The tips are made of brass and heat evenly. The hole in the tip is very uniform and holds it shape during normal use. The handles are made of durable heat resistant Delrin. Preferred kistky of pysanky instructors working with adolescent students. MADE IN USA

These kistky are not intended for the beginner, but the advanced pysanky artist. The funnel and tip are made of machined brass and hold the heat for a much longer period of time. This gives the artist more time to make longer and more intricate designs in a shorter period of time. In fact, these kistky are known by the name of the "Almost Electric Kistka".  The fine tips allow the artist to draw fine lines, however to avoid clogging,  we recommend using our professional series strip wax.  The handles are made of nylon and care must be taken to not overheat the head or place the handles directly in a flame.

These kistky are our lowest cost pysanky tools. Each kistka combines a machined brass head with a low cost wooden handle. Compared to rolled foil kistky, the writing tip has superior durability and repeatability.   The handle may not be as forgiving as the Delrin kistka, but the ease of use is as good.  Consider these kistky as a good option for classes on a tight budget or instructors who want to include tools for their participants to take home.
MADE IN USA


Interesting Fact:  The word kistka (pronounced keest-kah) comes from the Ukrainian word kist which means bone, suggesting that the original kistka was a piece of animal bone dipped in melted beeswax. The singular is kistka; the plural is kistky (pronounced keest-ky.)
