Blowing Out Eggs

Method 1 for small eggs such as chicken eggs.

  1. Holding the egg firmly but gently, pierce a hole in each end of the egg with a darning needle. Make one hole larger than the other.
  2. Pass the needle through the larger hole and, breaking the yolk inside, stir the contents.
  3. Blow into the small hole and force the contents out of the large hole into the bowl.
  4. Clean out the egg by running a little water through the large hole. Using a 50% bleach/water solution, fill the egg and let it sit for 30 minutes or until it stops bubbling.  Blow it out again.  This will help sterilize the egg.
  5. Let the eggs drain in a dish rack, colander or individual bottle caps overnight.  After the egg has dried, it is ready to decorate.

Method 2 (for all egg sizes)

  1. Holding the egg firmly but gently, drill a hole in one end of the egg with a dremel tool.
  2. Using a long needle or piece of wire, scramble the egg yolk inside the egg.
  3. Using a baby bulb or aquarium pump, force air into the hole a little at a time.  As you remove the bulb the egg will squirt out of the shell. 
  4. Clean out the egg by running a little water through the large hole. Using a 50% bleach/water solution, fill the egg and let it sit for 30 minutes or until it stops bubbling.  In large eggs (emu) it may take an hour.  Blow it out again.  Rinse with clear water and blow again.  This will help sterilize the egg.
Let the eggs drain in a dish rack, colander, individual bottle caps or coffee cups overnight.  After the egg has dried, it is ready to decorate.

Note:  when dyeing eggs that have been blown out, it is necessary to either let the egg fill with the dye water or to fill the egg with sand, plug the hole with wax and then dye the egg.
