Yeah, for this occasion I felt like making a little tutorial for Easter. I guess a lot of you cook the eggs till they're hard and then you will paint them. But before they're about to go bad you need to open them to eat and you gave so much work for painting them :'<

But with this tutorial I'm gonna show you how to prepare and paint your eggs you can keep them for a long time and even longer  :)

I took some photos while making the tutorial and my aunt helped me to blow out the content of the raw eggs c:

Hope that it will help you and I wish you a Happy Easter Everyone! Easter Bunny Basket Static

While I have known of the method to remove the yoke & whites from the eggs, a skewer to hold them  for painting is a splendid idea and one I will have to try :)

Oh yes, empty egg shells are very useful! Not just for the preservation of the painted artwork on them but they can also be used as jelly or chocolate egg molds (because in some places those can be a rarity or very expensive)Easter Bunnytard 

Congratulations on the DD and Happy Easter!!!:Only at Easter:

As chocolate egg molds? And this works? That's new for me :O But I think the eggshells are a bit too fragile to do.

Thank you very much :D And Happy Easter to you, too!

Yes, this technique does work, my mother had used it to make both chocolate and layered jelly eggs.
Of course in both cases the bottom hole of the empty eggshell has to be secured (can be a tricky task) and both the melted chocolate and the jelly has to be cooled a bit. And of course the eggshell has to be thoroughly cleaned since you would be using it as a mold for something edible.

We had made whole chocolate eggs with peanuts mixed inside them (the hole has to be made larger if one is using whole nuts). Although the one downside of the chocolate eggs that we'd made was that they were very difficult to eat or cut, having been made just out of melted chocolate (without diluting it with something). They became very solid and required a very big amount of chocolate to make (not the most economic solution).

 
You are welcome and thank you~ Easter Bunny Basket Static

Anytimes c:

So, as far as I understood you can fill inside of the empty cleaned eggshell the chocolate till it's cool, right? But I think you still need to remove the eggshell afterwards so you can use the eggshell as molds only one time.

:iconzzsnowwhitequeenzz:
zzSnowWhiteQueenzz Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2014
Yes, you can chill the filled eggshell in the fridge afterwards. If you're making layered (like white and dark) chocolate or jelly eggs, then you'll have to make sure that the layer is firmly set and that what you will pour on top of it is not too hot (as not to mix, especially important in the case of jelly).

Correct, the eggshell can be used only once, so it is quite a lot of work if you're making more than several eggs. It is basically used as a mold so it doesn't serve as a decoration, you remove it before serving the outcome. Although I guess it is possible to do so afterwards but you really have to think it through so that you wouldn't get the dye used for decoration on the egg and etc.

Ah, now I understand. I can see that's not that hard to make self-created chocolate eggs by using the empty eggshell als molding :)

You could make a little tutorial how to make chocolate eggs easily. The best for next year. I bet that a lot will have fun trying this out, too!

Hey!
Not to be rude, but this is a very typical westernised response. What I mean by that is that the first thing to pop into your mind when you saw this was: "doesn't everyones grandparent/parent know this? Couldn't they just ask them?"

Truth is, the world is rarely so generalised. Some people dont have grandparents or even parents. Some peoples parents don't know how to paint Easter eggs. And most importantly: Not everyone is from the same culture. On the internet, you're not only interacting with people like you, but also with people from different cultures, contries, societies even. It'd do you a lot of good to learn to 'not generalise', cause sometimes people can get worked up about it.

So next time you think of saying something like that, remember that not everyone comes from western countries with a deep background in Christian culture, and not everyone has the same take on Christian holidays! :iconcutiesmileplz:

I'm not annoyed by what you said, I just thought it'd be nice to spread some knowledge cause sometimes people get worked up about stuff like this.

I was never shown this way.  We've always done hardboiled eggs in commercial egg dyes.  I like doing eggs that way, because the darker colors of dye tend to leech through the egg shell and get on the cooked egg whites, leaving the egg inside splotched with blue, green, purple, and sometimes green or orange depending on the dyes.  Then I can use those eggs to make rainbow potato or egg salad.

Well, I guess most people know the method with painting eggs when they're boiled. And not in this way I made it for the tutorial.
And I agree with the fellow member. Not everyone has nice mothers and grandmothers showing you some crafty things. Or maybe you're moved out and you want to decorate your house or flat with those eggs. Then you need to do this without a help.

Actually, not everyone has nice mothers and grandmothers to show them. My mother never took after her mother's crafty side, and by the time I was old enough to learn my grandmother was too old to teach. Even she had to learn herself, since her mother was not the crafty sort and never took much interest in anything other than what she had to learn in order to survive in her era. All the crafts I know how to do I had to learn myself, and even things like this are somewhat new to me. For example I made a bunch of blown and painted eggs to crush into dragon egg shards for an alchemists kit a year or two ago but I never thought to put them on skewers to paint them.
