    How to do it
    Guide step %d
    1
    Casting in a real egg: Make a small hole in one end of an egg with a teaspoon. Prick a hole in the egg yolk with a skewer or similar. This is the easiest way of emptying the egg.

    Empty the egg white and the yolk.

    3
    Pour ordinary cooking oil into the egg and distribute it by lightly shaking the egg. Now pour out the cooking oil. NB: The oil makes it easier to release the moulded egg at the end when the casting is finished.

    4
    Mix 6 parts of Concrete craft powder to 1 part of water. Put the concrete mixture in a piping bag (disposable) and fill the egg. Let it harden for approx. 24 hours. A TIP! You can make a piping bag from a plain freezing bag by cutting a hole in the corner.
