It's as much a hovercraft as a pancake is a waffle.

Egg Art

Works of art with a dash of salt taste pretty good

Boiled eggs are unique. It seems to me that you could create unusual sculptures out of them a sell them to people who are having expensive parties with caviar.

Imagine.... You are sipping a martini and saunter over to the appetizers, where you spot the most unusual things. People are eating the little statues that you saw earlier. One's eating what looks like a bust of George Washington, while another is biting off the head of a miniature gargoyle. What a strange thing. You pick up a piece of abstract art and bite into it and find that it is egg white that has been carved into shapes and dyed. You go over, pick up a salt shaker, sprinkle the salt on the remains of your abstract, take another bite, and sauter off into the party.

       First things first: When I'm sipping a martini, I don't "saunter" over to the appetizer table. It's more like a glide.   

       [Fox], I like this idea. I want one carved in the image of Bernini's statue of David. [see link]

       Wonderful. You could use teflon forms to rapidly create egg white scuptures, then hand-paint them.
Worldgineer, Aug 25 2004
  

       So you glide. I saunter. It's the same to me. :)

       To each his own.

       //A truly beautifully carved egg takes time and care// Like a Fabergé.   

       Can I get you anything else, [Bach]? Perhaps some fois gras?

       HA ha ah....Mach, let's not bring that up again

       [swimr], I must admit I have no idea what you're talking about.
Machiavelli, Aug 25 2004
  

       [Link]...oh yeah + [df]

       [swimr], that's weird that I mentioned that. I hadn't read all the annos in that one (including yours, sorry). Now I understand. :)

       I tend not to drink martinis at all generally going with vodka from the bottle.Although, I don't get invited to social functions that often for some reason. Wouldn't these little sculptures stink something chronic?

       Only if they were old.
DesertFox, Aug 26 2004
  

       I usually slink when I have occasion to visit the appetizers and I would be delighted to find little egg statues awaiting me. [+]
DocBrown, Aug 26 2004
  

       Ahhhhh, slinking. I like slinking, too. That is good.
DesertFox, Aug 26 2004
  

       Slinkers.
Machiavelli, Aug 26 2004
  

       Gliding, sauntering and slinking...

       + Churning this one up because Easter is coming! Great idea. (where is [DesertFox] these days?)

       It would be better if they had yolk. Just pour a whole egg into a suitable mould and boil - the yolk should remain fairly central.
