These fried egg moulds are made from 0.5mm mirror polished stainless steel. At less than £1 each to make I think they were pretty cheap. They were also a lot of fun to make and the possibilities for designs are almost endless.
I made a star, a heart and a Land Rover Defender (vrrrrrrrrrrrm!). You could also make some eggciting ninja eggs, or even android or instructables robot eggs! All using the same method documented below.
A note on spelling: I'm British, so I apologise, you will have to put up with our penchant for adding a U to the middle of as many words as we can. You might know these better as molds.
Step 1: Tools, Materials, Ingredients & Equipment
- steel ruler
- tin snips
- whiteboard pens
- strips of 0.5mm stainless steel, 500mm long
- bread for toasting
- frying spatula
- frying pan (not your best one)
- egg moulds!
Step 2: Choosing shapes
Download those included in this step, or create your own using the custom shapes in Microsoft Word or by roughly tracing around the outline of a picture in Photoshop or Gimp. For the Land Rover mould I found a side-on image of a Land Rover I liked then traced around it in another layer. Once I'd drawn the outline, I deleted the base layer, leaving me with the outline.
