An emu farm use to vend at the Oregon state fair, and they sold eggs (sans innards...they drained them).

Is washi paper the same paper used for origami? I've never heard of it until now.
Do you think this could be done using one sized wrapping paper as well?

Some (but not all) origami papers are the same as washi. its thicker and the back of the paper feels a little rough, where some origami papers are quite thin, smooth and easily water logged.

They can be done with any paper that doesn't bleed colors when wet, but the thinner and smoother the paper is, the more difficult it will be (washi works well because of its texture and thickness, it absorbs moisture without becoming flimsy or easily wrinkled).

now, stupid question. I'm kind of clumsy, so would a wooden egg work just as well with this? And, also, does it *have* to be washi paper, or can you use other types of paper?
