First, tap lightly all the way around the narrower end of the egg about 1/3 down from the top, creating an opening in the shell. Carefully pull off shell “cap” and pour egg contents into bowl. I also add drainage, but that's optional.

Using egg dye, dye eggshells the same way you dye hard-boiled eggs.

      Just regular brown eggs from the grocery store. The zoom in might have to do with size perception - not intentional, sorry.
