Well, its not exactly printmaking, but the story goes like this:  In 2006, members of Green Bay Art Colony, of which I am a member,
were given Emu Eggs by Patti Wouters of Rock-n-K Ranch.  She challenged us to "do something artistic" to the eggs and then donate
them to Art Spectacular to raise money for the non-profit group.  After thinking about it for a while, I decided to use some of the
printmaking processes I was familiar with to paint resists on the eggs and then "etch" them in acid.  Emu Eggs are unique in that they
are made of multi-colored layers.  The first etching removes the outer dark layer revealing a teal layer.  The second etching goes
deeper into the teal layer, revealing a lighter layer.  After the eggs are etched, they are cleaned again removing the resist and all
traces of the acid.  They are then sealed with a protective coating.
