Etched Emu Eggs

Emu eggs are very carefully etched with a high speed drill, through three layers of shell; each revealing a different color.  Dark emerald green on the outer layer,  teal in the middle and white on the inside layer.  Designs are made using these three colors.

  2. These are so beautiful!! Intricate and perfect capture of the animals you’ve depicted. The color layers of the eggs are gorgeous. Of course, my favorite is the heron!
