Pliers and egg shell

I spent a lot of time crinkling some plastic and putting blue or red gels on my lights but never came up with anything I liked. So I decided a craocked egg might be interesting. I didn't want a mess, so I blew out the white and yolk. My wife liked this but immediately complained that there was no egg leaking out. So while I liked this, I had to move on to a full egg (tomorrow).

That is terrific but, yes, a little leaking egg would have been nice.
