How to make a dragon egg - part 3 ( the yolk, white and the frying pan)

 

If you watched the video for this project you saw me crack open that egg and fry it up in a very manly pan! LOL

Here are some bonus materials that show you how I made these special effects. It took a little bit of effort but was well worth it.

Part 1 of this tutorial on making the dragon egg is here

 

Frying a dragon egg

 

Making the Yolk of the egg

The yolk turned out to be a bit challenging because I didn't want to just use a spherical object. I wanted the yolk to plop into the pan and settle down a bit like a real yolk would do. There are probably a hundred different ways to do this but here is how I did it.

foam ball

I glued together two foam hemispheres to make a ball the desired yolk size. You could use anything spherical like a softball.

 

cut the rubber

Then I painted it with several coats of latex rubber. Allowing it to dry between coats. I used a product called Mold Builder: (Amazon: Mold Builder Liquid Latex Rubber 16oz/473ml )

Once that was all dry I cut a large slit in it and removed the foam sphere from inside. Now I have a hollow rubber ball.

 

Patch the rubber

And I resealed the slit with the latex rubber . But I left about two inches of the slit still open so I could....

 

Fill with water

Then I inserted a ziploc bag into the slit and filled it about half full with water. I then sealed the bag and tucked it all right into the egg yolk. Now the bag, half full with water makes the yolk sag nicely.

 

Seal it

Then paint the yolk a nice yolk color. It is mostly yellow with just a little bit of orange mixed in.

 

Add the fake white

Now to bring the whole egg together I cut the egg into two halves ragged like this. Kind of flintstone like. I taped a gallon ziploc bag into it and poured clear dishwashing liquid into that. The dishwashing liquid is the white of the egg.

 

Close up the egg

Put the yolk we made right on top then put the egg back together.

 

Fry the egg

Now it is ready for the video. I "cracked" the egg on the side of the pan and poured ou the yolk and white! Yay! Breakfast.

Next One thing remains. How did I make that big ole frying pan! Continue on and see
