It took me so long to draw on the whole egg. I've had like a dozen of them and only ONE is left that is not broken. All of the rest were broken because they fall. It takes a long time to draw on them. You can only draw like in small increments because you have to leave it to dry. As you draw more, there is LESS space where your fingers go because there is less places for your fingers to go on empty undrawn areas. You can still smudge it when it is a week dried so its hectic. Once finished, I spray it so it can't be smudged anymore.

Only one left....im pissed...whatever, I enjoy it!

Very lovely!

I saw your last drawing and I am very impressed and mesmerized by your beautiful art. I really enjoy the abstract, free-form patterns you come up with. Thanks for posting, and keep sharing with us!

I draw faces on eggs at Easter and find using waterproof permanent ink dries fast and doesn't smudge. Egg shell is very porous though and it soaks ink through the shell.

I am an artist and know ceramics etc, it is easy to make a mould and fill with plaster for a white smooth egg shape.

Love it! It's fun to look at with all the different designs. I really like how the dots give it texture.



Really dig your artistic style!

Beatiful! For those of us who may not be as good in fine drawing you can also use many kinds of transfers. You can use the ones for fabric, eggs, or even china and tattoo transfers.
My sister does delicate asian themes on eggs in the black ink, lovely.

You still have to be very careful after blowing out the egg though.

There are also really nice colouring ideas. Fastening lace tightly round an egg and soaking in food colouring for a few days gives a nice pattern.

Nice egg art!

I've done some badass easter eggs but never that ornate, I'm eating them soon.

My favorite oddly shaped painting was a 12" ceramic road turtle I mounted to a bearing then a 24" square plywood box, painted Columbus' 3 ships on it, and the flat old world on the plywood surrounded by dying Seminoles and the king and queen of Spain. I think its a statement


I have 3 silly putty plastic eggs I might gesso up and texture up with colors, I bet they dont break as easy

My dude.. get one of those egg holders people use at breakfast.

or im sure some sort of vice with felt lining. if you put it in a vice with the ends pressed an egg is incredibly strong.

Good work btw. Looks cool.

You should try some of these carvings next.

I tried inking quite a few years ago, starting my college years at SCAD and then moved up to carving. Unfortunately it is tedious to say the least, every egg I've started has broke at some point.
Good luck.

Here is one of my older sketches:
