Theresa Child of Valparaiso, Ind., has been making Polish pisanki or the wax-resist method of decorating Easter eggs for 50 years. She learned this art from her grandmother, Ludwika Jasiak, who decorated in the style of her village, Kakolowka, near the city of Rzeszów in Southeastern Poland. Every region of Poland and, in fact, every family in Poland has its own unique style of decorating eggs. This is how Child was taught to make pisanki.
