Alcohol Lamp - 2 oz (60ml) - Useful for Making Pysanky (Ukrainian Easter Eggs)
A wonderful source of clean heat for heating/melting the wax in your kistka, heating your Drop-Pull Pin, or for removing/melting the wax off of you finished pysanka. Will NOT leave soot marks (which can mar your pysanka when using a regular candle).
Denatured Alcohol: Use only denatured alcohol in you alcohol lamp (not included, but readily available in hardware or home improvement stores). IT is the only fuel that will burn efficiently without sputtering. *Note - it is possible to use other fuels (ie isopropyl alcohol), but your results may not be as good (intensity of flame may be less; sputtering may occur).
The best wick: The included wick is extra thick with an internal core to give you a bigger, brighter flame than most alcohol lamps. A bigger, more durable wick means the flame itself is larger and outputs more heat. *Note- the height of the flame can be adjusted by adjusting the height of the wick in the opening. I find the ideal flame height is 1/2 to 1 inches.
Each lamp comes packaged in its own box.
Safety: Use the snuffer cap to put out the flame when it is not being used (do not attempt to blow out). Always have a fire extinguisher close by when working with open flame.

Caring for your Pysanka / Pysanka Ornament: Your Pysanka has been blown out, resulting in an empty eggshell which will last for many, many years with a few tips. Keep out of direct sunlight, or bright lighting. It has been coated with a UV protective polyurethane or acrylic to help preserve the colors, but sunlight may gradually fade the colors. Blues and greens are most prone to fading. Treat the pysanka or pysanka ornament the way you would handle a blown glass ornament -- do not drop, or use chemicals to clean. If the loop on the ornament should come loose, simply add a drop of "crazy glue" to re-attach.
Caring for you Pysanka Eggshell Jewelry: You jewelry has been created on an eggshell (ei. mostly goose and ostrich wheels), and then encased in a strong 2 part epoxy resin. The resin acts to protect and strengthen the pattern and the shell. I recommend keeping your piece in its mesh bag, to keep from other jewelry coming in contact. After wearing, you can wipe gently with a damp cloth (i.e. microfiber cloth used for cleaning eyeglasses).
