Picture of Carving An Egg
Carving eggs can be a lot of fun, if you get good at it and enjoy this kind of art work.

MATERIALS: be creative!
For this project I used
Goose egg, blown and cleaned- eBay
Faux silk cloth- Joan's fabrics- $7.50
Enamel paints(these work best in my opinion)-2.00
Craft hinges- Michael's- 1.50
Chain- the kind for beading/necklaces
Some kind of edging if you want
TOOLS:
I use a Dremel, but any high-speed rotary tool will work
Various cutting/engraving bits
Charcoal or soft lead pencils
Gum eraser


This is my first instructable so help is welcome!

Step 1: Choose Your Egg

Choosing an egg will decide exactly how much you can do. For this project I used a goose egg for the size and to help keep costs down. But you can use whichever kind you want, it's up to you!

That's my plan eventually. Not this egg, this was just for valentines day, but I'm working on a series to propose with.

Cool idea! That could be a neat way to propose or to give jewelry! Women would love it. Use glitter, paint, googlie eyes (for silly eggs) anything to show you made it personally for sum1! Love it!!
