Default Eggs, the end result

Two dozen eggs in an antique chicken waterer.

Thanks Ciderman. It took me about 1&1/2 months to make all of them. Everytime I pick up one thinking "What pattern will I make this time" it just seems to happen. Like the saying goes "Your imagination is your only limitation".

Thanks PP.

I had a waterer like this in the early 70's full of eggs. My MIL, God bless her soul, was "helping" me by dusting my house while she stayed with us to be near the hospital her father was in. She thought the top and bottom was glued together. When she picked it up, by the top, of course the all the eggs fell out and it surprised her so much she dropped top and it broke both the top and bottom and all but one or two eggs out of about 30.

I found this one on eBay a few months back.

A two for one egg. A friend that has a MIL he is very fond of wanted a speical gift for her that included her horse. Here is Waynetta & Penny. The egg is an emu egg.

Hummmm? Tried to post a photo but it opened my whole Photobucket to view. So what do I do if I only want to post the photo and not a link to all of my photos?

You can put it in a photo album on this site and link to that. Unfortunately the picture can't be more than 50mg...

I tried for a half hour last night and it still didn't show the photo but linked back to my Photobucket page.

I'm sure I'm doing something wrong I'm just not sure what.

Thank you Di. It's an emu egg. Actually if you see it in person it looks more like a avacado. A really large avacado. First layer is a very dark green that almost looks black. The next layer can be white. Not all eggs have this layer. The 3rd is a beautiful teal green and the 4th is white. The only thing left is the membrain that most eggers remove because over the years it dries and pulls away.

There are many eggers, especially Asain, that carve eggs with nothing more than E-xacto type knives and other non electric carving tools. I own a Dremel (35,000 rpm's) and a dental tool that runs off a compresser at near 400,000 rpm's. More rpm's = less vibration = less cracked egg shells.

Default Links to egg photos

Since I have no luck posting photos here I thought I'd try posting some using the IMG link in my Photobucket account onto TimeBomb. No struggling to resize or anything. Easy peazy.
