Decorating Eggs with Emu's Zine

  • Egg Blowing Instructions - for all size eggs
  • Egg Handling Safety Tips
  • Cascaron or Mexican Confetti Eggs - we recommend chicken eggs only for this project!
  • Chocolate Eggs  (with a hidden surprise!) (any size egg will work for this project)
  • Crayon Eggs A project children always enjoy - but with a new twist - we use emu eggs and etch them with a vinegar bath!  For all eggs.
  • Gold Leafing Eggs - instructions from Art Editor Stephanie Ramey on how to apply gold leaf to eggs.  This project is shown with chicken eggs, but can be done with any size egg.
  • Mosaic Eggs This kids project is a little bit messy - but kids love it!  Stephanie Ramey shows us step by step how to create these colorful, fun eggs using chicken eggs.
  • Rubber Band Eggs Dye eggs wrapped in rubber bands.  For all eggs except emu.
  • Vinegar and Candle Wax Eggs  We show you how to use candle wax and vinegar to etch interesting designs on Emu Eggs - but it can be done with any egg.  For a different twist - use dye instead of vinegar for the white shelled eggs!
  • Vinegar Etching With Rubber Cement Rubber cement designs peel off your finished egg easily.  For all eggs - and the idea can be adapted to include dying.
  • Thread Work Eggs A unique idea from artist Edna Mays Isaac for using bits of lace, tatting or crochet
