Hey cool! I remember making eggs using that technique when I was younger. Mine did not turn out nearly as nicely as yours though! Did you also drill little holes in the egg to get rid of the insides?

Thanks for all your comments :-D

I do not have a link. But I did take some in-progress shots of the dark egg.
I could take pictures of the materials used but I wont be able to do this before tomorrow.
