I have an egg vacuum device that I got from a place in Canada,
Surma may have them, too. Anyway, we always varnished the egg
first, then used the vacuum device which attaches to a kitchen
faucet. You only have to poke one hole that way, and by
varnishing the eggs first you keep the dyes from running if they
get wet. I'll see if I can find the Canadian address if anyone
wants it.
