Faberge questions

Owesen asks:

Or are you aiming for the full deal, with two-headed eagles galore?

to which I reply:

the full deal with two-headed eagles! that would just be insane. maybe in 10 years from now.

Right now, I'm looking at getting a good egg shape. I figure if I can get that working, everything else can be done from there. I've started playing around with an octagonal base, but I might need more points to do what I'm trying to do here... I'm thinking I can incorporate some swirls from a star-like base to give me the crossing grid on the egg. If I can get something on the intersections that looks like a diamond, hexagon, star, etc that's a big plus. I plan on folding one and then making some patterned paper to give me the "look" of the egg. any extra details I can do are all just icing on the cake.

as far as the egg opening, I thought of using two pieces of paper and finding a way to link them together... trying to do it out of one sheet just doesn't seem practical.

Insanity, or at least partial insanity, seems to me to be a prerequisite for even considering serious origami. I do like how you are aiming for an actuall egg shape. Seeing how you pull of getting an evenly spaced pattern on the curved surface of the egg will be interesting (since the lines of the pattern will need to be curved when the sheet is flat(?)). If you can do it, the results are likely to be nothing short of spectacular.
