I made these eggs for Ryan's dad, Jim, for Christmas two years ago, after learning that he collects decorative eggs. Since I had never made - or even heard of - Washi eggs before, I had pretty much no idea what I was getting myself into when I ordered the kit online.

I bet it would be super badass if someone made a bunch of them and displayed them in a nice, big glass bowl with a really wide mouth. I actually thought about doing that, but then I remembered how long each egg took me, and that was the end of that brilliant idea.
One of these days, though...
