Here is a novel idea? Buy one from a magic shop.
It will help the struggling shop owner in a small way.
Whatever price you pay is small compared to being thrown
out of the kitchen for making a mess and not cleaning
after ourselves guys.

Respectfully yours,

Manny, you have solved it. Thanks. Sadly, I just cracked a blown egg that I have used since 1980. Argh... (Yes I have spares).

If you are in an area that has a Cracker Barrel store, they have ceramic eggs that look very real for $1.00. I have used them to make a very good silk to eggs buy using my Dremmell tool (don't forget your safety glasses).

How about this? A fake egg that you can crack open in front of the spectators and they actually see the yolk drop out and it can be re-used over and over again. Perhaps the insides can be made from some type of rubber slime and the shell is a thin plastic egg with jagged edges and snaps back together.

Well I suppose you could come up with something like that, but for my routines, the importance of blowing out the egg is that there is nothing inside of it. When I do my comedy egg can routine, no contents from the egg can enter the can at all. It just needs to look like it does. So a standard blown egg does the trick perfectly and with ease.

I've had one of these for years. It's edge is smooth, though, not jagged. Came with a plastic yolk and the recommendation to use something like dishwashing liquid for the white.

I use s small nail and "drill" the hole by7 rotating back and forth. Then I suck instead of blow, seems to work easier and is easier on my eardrums for sure. Finally, blow in a little water and rinse our the egg.

Not sure of her technique but my sister prepares 3 dozen blown eggs every Easter for decorating. She tells me it's easy and she has no breakage. She also makes great omelettes with the rest of the egg.

A quick google search found the following and there were plenty more.

Hey guys, not to go too far off topic, wouldnt it be a neat idea to use for Easter if you made the first hole ont he top of the egg, stuck the tool in to break the yolk and mix it with the egg white, then put the spackle over the whole, or anything else to seal the whole.. Now maybe you could hard boil the egg, and once you crack the egg open, the egg will be very deformed looking (I am assumiung), and may just be something cool to play around with..

Its no joke. If a magician needs a hollow egg to break on stage he needs to get the yoke out of it first lest he end up with quite a mess. Its also done to an egg before painting it for easter. http://www.wikihow.com/Blow-Out-Eggs

Talk about performing miracles... we somehow got two pages out of blowing an egg! Somebody lock this before we all crack up.

Sorry- really.

Close the thread - are you kidding? I just clicked this linked and learned that eggs have cuticles! Smile
I have six locks on my door all in a row. When I go out, I only lock every other one. I figure no matter how long somebody stands there picking the locks, they are always locking three. Elayne Boosler

After the egg is blown, a good coat of paint to keep it strong for a long period of time, and to store a small tupperware with lid to keep it from being crushed in the travel box.

I usually do mine a day before a 2 or 3 day festival and do not coat them with anything. I just place them wrapped in a paper towel and in a tupper ware container and I am set and ready to go.

Michael,

Go to Dollar Tree and get a package of plastic eggs. I keep many items protected in them, even EGGS! Money is no object!

Wives tend to require no explanations for these!

See you at Magi-Whirl 2007.
