Working with empty eggshells

Pros

  • Empty shells can be stored indefinitely for future use.
  • Works great with larger hard to find eggshells like Turkey, Goose, Ostrich etc.
  • Empty shells unwax quickly, because the air inside heats quickly.
  • No risk of ruining a finished egg during emptying.

Cons

  • Empty shells float; they must be weighed down in dye.
  • Hole(s) must be plugged.
  • Empty shells are prone to moisture leakage through pores.
  • Emptying must be done well in advance; shells must be completely dry before dyeing.
