If you want to keep an egg (shell) indefinitely or decorate an egg for a special occasion such as Easter, you will need to blow an egg. By blowing an egg, you are removing the contents so that it doesn't go off, leaving the shell intact except for two small holes at either end.
There is an unlimited number of things you can create from your egg once it has been blown, limited only by your imagination! The frog to the right was made from a blown egg by Sally Barnet.
You will need: A large needle, a cocktail stick and a small syringe.
Here's how to blow an egg
These lovely dark brown Maran eggs have been blown to preserve them. These were on display by the Marans Club at the National Poultry Show held at Stoneleigh (UK) in December 2008.
