Blue pysanky are a recent addition to the Hutsul pysankar’s palette, and do not come from the Ukrainian tradition of pysankarstvo.  Some are purely blue and white (using light and dark blues); others have a black final color.

On this page are several pysanky I purchased in Kolomyia over the years.  I suspect the designs are copies of Romanian originals.  The motifs are largely non-Ukrainian, although some of the individual components (bezkonechnyk waves) could be found on Ukrainian eggs.  As I am not an expert on Romanian eggs, I am not sure if they are pure copies or hybrids.
