Ostrich Eggshells

Egg Art

  • Ostrich eggshells are ivory in color and have a shiny finish.
  • All eggshells are measured lengthwise.
  • Average size eggs are from 16 to 17.75 inches.
  • Large eggshells are all of those above 17.75 inches, of course.
  • Slightly flawed eggshells can have a surface that is less shiny than the normal finish, large pores,pores that make a  noticeable pattern in the shell and/or a few other variations.  If in doubt contact the person you are purchasing these from.
  • Chalky eggshells have absolutely no shine and are quite rough.  These are great for decoupage, painting, beading or to practice carving!
