    Quote:Lol. I was looking on Ebay for blown eggs and came across vinegar etched eggs. Apparently, you draw your design on the egg in wax (beeswax I'm guessing) then the egg is submersed in white vinegar until the desired amount of color comes off of the un waxed part. Looks like it would be fun to try.

    Sounds like that would look really neat on the Marans eggs or Emu eggs! [​IMG]
