The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

Wanted more than 1 egg for an up coming photoshoot and wasn't really happy with the neck egg and also forking out for more than one.
So decided to 3d print half of a perfectly symmetrical egg and make a silicone told that can be joined together. Saving both time and money.
eggs at about 80cm high. Smoothed out the 3d printed egg with a thin layer of resin. Then started the process of adding layer after layer of silicone.

Now there's a good way to make an egg! I can't wait to see what it looks like with both sides completed and attached. How long did it take to print the one side?

Love the moulds, I take it you're going to mould the final product as a thin urethane shell with some foam or other kind of filler to make it sturdy?

Eggs are done in black gel coat, fibreglass matt and polyester resin. Talcum powder mixed into resin when needing to thicken it up or make it stick to a obscure surface.
