It would be easier, to just print an egg-shaped item on
a 3D printer, use a filament which is paint-able with
acrylic paint, and make the Faberge egg that way.

Were 3D printers commonly available 15 years ago when the question was
asked?


And it's not in the spirit of Faberge eggs anyway :-)

I did like the comment about "a drill or a hammer" though.
That's one tough egg. The bird inside must have a diamond beak,
to get out.

Yes we will sell for a good price on the black market cos all we see is
black. Actually that is not the case but it was just too tempting.

Public flogged, How do you know we might not enjoy it? It takes all sorts.
At least I did not suggest you sawed the whole Ostrich in half then the egg
would be softer and you could eat well for a few days.

Yes I was thinking that.


I'm not sure where you would get either egg these days anyway.


Emu eggs are still available here, but more restricted than they once
were.

You might need to shell out a lot for an Eggcelent cutting tool nowadays.


I'd have you publicly flogged for that if you hadn't
so obviously enjoyed that the last time. And donít
try claiming that we cant flog the blind either.

The egg, I'm using an Emu egg, is thicker and stronger than you think.
An Ostrich egg is probably stronger (think of what's inside and has to
be contained). I've used a VERY fine tooth saw or a Dremel Cutting
tool on LOW speed. The egg MUST be Secured to avoid uneven cut.

I'm making Faberge Egg replicas for Christmas presents this year using
EMU Eggs.

Given that it was 15 years ago, you are just a tad late.

The eggs are available, because there are small hobby farms keeping
exotic birds.


Ostrich eggs are £25 in Waitrose. I suppose people must buy them...

Theo


One of the Scottish farms followed on "This Farming Life" on
BBC2 tried rearing Emu's ? for meat, but gave up because it
cost more than the potential returns. Also tricky to incubate
them successfully.

I've been cutting Ostrich & Emu Eggshells. Tried Everything.
First pencil where you want cut. Use a COPING saw to gently make a shallow cut in egg all around. Then, go around again, going deeper with each round until egg is cut in half. Will be a little rough, Put med. grit sandpaper flat and rub shell half over it 'til smooth. Trim will cover -up flaws.

Rather likely that in 15 years he managed to work it out for himself or gave
up.
