Yup. I went to the market bought a dozen chicken eggs and made some ornaments. I flushed out the yolk and took the dremel to some of them and  left some intact. These were a blast to make and I LOVE them! Now I need to get my hands on some goose and emu eggs.
I should probably mention that my Mom is a Faberge egg artist and I spent most of my childhood cleaning eggs. If anybody wants to know how just ask.

I would love to know how to clean out eggs! XD I think it would be fabulous if you did a tutorial! I also would love to know how you did the designs on your eggs, as well! They are just gorgeous!

They look lovely. Do duck eggs work well for this as well? I only ask because I'm sometimes very lucky to be given fresh duck eggs and DH only eats scrambled so I"m sure I could save the shell if I learn how to take the yolk out without breaking the egg. The chicken eggs I have are really small as they some from my Mum's very small chickens.

These are awesome!  I would love to know how to do this.  Are you adding something to them?  This can't be just carving.  Beautiful!

Duck eggs would be fine. I'll try to do the tut this week.

Really all it is:
Cleaned egg,polymer clay,some liquid sculpy for glue to the egg, a dremel(if you chose to carve), and if your scared of breaking a little white glue.
