    Not sure if this is the appropriate category for this. I blow out and save my most impressive eggs but Ive noticed the color fades quite fast. Anyone have any experience in coating/spraying them to preserve the color?

    I would think any craft sealer might work...probably best to keep them out of direct sun light also.

    I doubt eggshells are acid-free, so I doubt you're going to have much long-term luck, but I second a good spray-sealant to at least avoid rub-off/moisture damage.

    Good luck; I know my eggs completely change color in 24 hours -- it's really obvious which eggs have just been added to the carton on any given day.
