That's how it's done

1. Draw the pattern

Cover the ostrich egg with masking tape from top to bottom. This serves as a marker and support in order to be able to draw a symmetrical pattern. Now draw the desired pattern with a pencil on the ostrich egg. It is best to sketch this on a piece of paper beforehand.

2. Drill the pattern

Use the precision drill to drill through the small markings of the lace pattern previously drawn. Work slowly and carefully so that the material does not break.

3. Complete the pattern

To get a contrast to the filigree details, replace the precision drill with the high-speed milling cutter and drill larger holes. The particles in the eggshell can be easily removed with a brush.
