    I want to know if there is something you can put on the egg after blowing it out to make it stronger. Like a paint or something? Something to harden the egg for long use in crafts. I kept all my FIRST eggs from each girl and just got the last FIRST egg today. So I blew them all out today.

    Any ideas are welcome. Thanks in advance~

    You could use just about any clear coat such as shelac, varathane, polyurathane. Polyurathane would probably be about the strongest.

    It would probably make the egg really shiny, but not change the colour as long as its a clear coat.
