Blown Goose Eggs for Art
These eggs offer a unique and beautiful medium to create exquisite egg art
. To supply this growing art practice with the supplies they need, we blow out and clean infertile duck and goose eggs
shortly after they are laid. We make a very small hole (just 7/32'') on the large end of the egg and drain the contents of the egg. Next, we rinse the egg and disinfect it with distilled water. To offer top quality eggs, we candle the shells to ensure that there aren't any cracks, stains or flaws in the eggs. We then use a muriatic acid solution to get the egg as white as possible, making it the perfect art medium. However, we can skip the acid wash step if you prefer a more naturally colored egg, or if you are planning on dying the egg.
We have the blown duck and goose eggs
available year round, although the blown goose eggs
sell out faster, as we can only produce them during the Spring.
Blown Goose Eggs
are sized according to their circumference. We measure the circumference by encircling the egg at the longest possible spot, longitudinally along the upright egg.
