Okay, well guys I'm looking for an Egg pretty much. I had a beautiful egg that came with my Mikame Egg Back a few months back, but when practicing I accidently dropped the egg and my bloody luck the thing cracked. I was thinking about making my own egg one similar to Mikame's type, although I have realised its a bit of a hastle and the possibility of breaking the egg comes back into the equation. So I'm pretty much looking for any egg which you think is a great egg to work with for an egg bag routine.

Preferably a realistic hollow or solid wooden blown egg.

Otherwise a realistic looking plastic alternative should do.

I really dont want to use another real egg, but I will also take suggestions.

Thanks.

Anthony

Look for the name "Eggs-actly" from Tirofog.

They use real blown eggs, and coat the inside with epoxy. They can still break, but you'll have to work at it.

Gazzo does a whole tutorial on making a blown egg on his upcoming Egg Bag DVD. Just a heads up :)

Thanks for the advice guys.

I'll take a look into those eggs Dave, It's just a pain sometimes considering its in my restaurant routine and becasue at a point the spectators do handle the egg and I'm always nervous they will break it.

And Acar I'll have to keep a looks out for that DVD, might be worth it in the long run. . .

Any other suggestions are appreciated.

With Gazzo the audience member never actually "handles" the egg, but is personally convinced it's real. I won't spoil a potential sale by saying more. You'll have to get the DVD for the details.

I wouldn't be too worried about them breaking the blown egg. I squeezed one pretty tightly and it didn't crack. I've held a pretty firm pressure on it for around half and hour and didn't have any issues, not to mention dropping it a couple of times. It only takes a few minutes to make one, so it's not hard to replace either. One thing I did was to run a glue stick over the shell to give it that extra bit of strength.

Glad to know Gazzo's putting out a DVD. I'll definitely be picking that up. My fiance made a beautiful Egg Bag for me which we may start selling after a few more test runs. Johnny Thompson has some great work on the bag on his L&L series, as well.

Actually, he already made a DVD. It was in his magicpitch days right about the time he made a deal with Penguin so it wasn't really marketed. It was available pretty much only at Gazzo's lectures.

I don't know if this is a reissue of that video footage or if Penguin reshot a new video. Either way, it'll be good.
