PysankyPlugs© Are a PusankyUSA original.They were first developed by me Jim Hollock I brought them to the public first, others may try to duplicate them, but they will never achieve the high quality of product that I present. PysankyPlugs© will replace waxing holes shut. Just select the correct size plug that will block the hole in the egg that you are using. Gently twist the plug into place. NEVER PUSH THE PLUG IN PLACE. Place the egg in the dye, use a gloved finger or dipper to move the egg around in dye, for larger eggs I use double Zip-Lock bags. Use caution not to bump the plug end, and never lift the egg and use the plug as a dipper, this could cause small cracks to happen around the hole. When you achieve your desired color, place the egg on a paper towel, and blot it, gently twist and remove the PysankyPlugs© this allows air to circulate inside the shell. Once you master the use of PysankyPlugs© you will never wax another hole closed. The dye goes right up to the edge of the drilled hole line, no more wax circle on the bottom of your Pysanky.I recomend a diamond dust drilling cone to make perfect round holes, available at the PysankyUSA Store under Help Prpducts.
