My machine draws for me when I fill eggs with paint and drop them onto poster board. The machine works as follows. Take an egg and poke a small hole in the smaller end of the shell with a needle. Poke a slightly larger hole in the larger end. Blow on the smaller end so the egg comes out through the bottom of the shell. Fill the egg with the three primary colors of paint through the larger hole. I used red, blue, and yellow tempera. Place a piece of poster board on a hard surface, and drop the egg onto the poster board. The machine (the egg filled with paint) will smash and splatter paint on the poster board. The pain will swirl and mix to create different colors and designs when it is let out of the egg. The color theory is displayed here by the greens, purples, oranges, and neutral gray/browns created, and the eggshells get painted as well.
