Introduction: Carve An... "egg"?

We've all heard of cooking an egg or... etching an egg.

BUT? carving an egg?

we've never heard of that (I mean I haven't)

And that's why today I'm going to show you the basics of carving an egg.

Step 1: What You'll Need..

A dremel or other rotary tool

A Pointed drill bit (see picture above)

A cleaned out eggshell (this can be done by drilling two holes into opposite sides of the egg and blowing through one)

Led's/Edible Slime(instructions to make can be found online) (optional)

and thats it...

Step 2: Making Holes and Lines

Hold the egg at an angle to the rotary tool and press slightly to make a hole,

move it sideways and make a line... thats it

Step 3: Light It Up or Fill It Up

Light it up, if you want by just putting an LED inside it.

OR.. fill it up with edible slime for a disgusting looking but delicious desert.(it takes some practice to make slime of the right consistency so that it drips out)

Step 4: Have Patience!

Don't get frustrated if you don't get it the first time, it took me a few tries too.

FYI: opting for farm fresh eggs (in the us) will get you stronger shells. the process that store bought eggs goes through to reduce salmonella on the shells reduced the shell strength considerably.

same here in the uk :/ I get most my eggs from the local farm. I just think they taste better that way :)

Not quite the same, but I've done this and filled the shell with coloured plaster before carving for a fun effect. It also makes the shell less fragile :) my own ible for it will be coming soon
