    I've seen pictures of eggs that look to have been decorated with a sharpie. They had faces drawn on them. I would think that if you did that to a raw egg, it woudn't be good to eat. Am I right? If so, what can I use to draw on an egg that would still leave the egg edible?

    Chinese pencil (You know the waxy kinds that peel to reveal a new tip) work very well for drawing on eggs. I use them to mark my incubator eggs. The wax doesn't go through the shell like sharpie does.

    You can try finding them at Micheal's Arts and Crafts store. Visit their website to find a store near to you. Hopefully there's a residential store in your area. Good luck!

    I found them at Hobby Lobby, but boy did I have to look, there were only 2 pks on the shelf mixed in with all the graphite pencils, calligraphy pens, and color pencils, I almost gave up. :)
