For un-blown eggs, I have found that using whole eggs raw results in less-smelly accidental breakages, plus they dry out much quicker.  I wouldn't recommend using hard-boiled eggs.

ah the lost days of my childhood...
at school they taught us pysanky. it was a class, in fifth grade.

i miss my hippie school.

i miss doing pysanky.

all my dyes are rotting (quite literally) in the garage. my poor electric kistka is probably rusty and unusable. i only have traditional kistky other than that and i hate those. they're so unreliable and they catch on fire really easily.

You can also blow out the eggs after they have been completed.  I hate working with blown eggs, so I just write on a whole raw egg, then take of the wax (goo gone is great for this), then varnish.  Once dry, I can drill a hole and blow out the raw egg, rinse with water and either vinegar or simple green (bleach would be best, but I can't bear bleach), and I have a lovely egg that won't explode six months down the line!

To empty the eggs, I use a special egg blower thing I picked up at Baba's, but there is also a low-tech way.  Just make a hole in each end of the egg using a big needle (tapestry), widening the hole a touch at one end.  Use the needle to pierce the yolk, and mix the insides around.  Then blow on the small hole end, and the insides will come out the big hole.  Then make scrambled eggs Wink
