001 Open the original egg image.
002 Now with the Clone stamp Tool you shall eliminate one of the eggs slowly. In case you dont know how to use this tool, just do the following. With the Clone tool selected you shall press alt + click on the part of the image you shall be cloning, in this case its the background. Once you have done this, wherever you pass the clone over it shall copy what you have clicked previously. In this case I want to eliminate one of the eggs and place the background to make it look as if the egg where never there.
003One really important tool is the Patch Tool. Once you have finished eliminating one of the eggs with the clone tool you will notice that there are some imperfections where the egg used to be.
You shall select the patch tool and set it as in the image.
With the patch tool selected you will select a part of the background apply it over the parts you have cloned previously. This will eliminate most of the imperfections and make it look uniform.
After completing the steps above, your image will look something like this.
004Now you will open an image thats contains a bubble such as this one.
Select only the bubble. I used the Elliptical Marquee Tool to do so.
Copy it and place it in the image we are working on.
005 Now we will lover all the saturation on the bubble image(layer). Tip: A fast way to do so is to press Ctrl + Shift + U.And we will lower the opacity to 30% making it look transparent.

006 Now you will use the Warp Tool on the bubble to shape it as if it were an egg.
007Now select an image of an egg yolk and place it on top of the bubble layer. After doing so you will apply multiply.
008 Now on a new layer you will select a white soft brush tool and pass it over the top of the bubble to imitate the lighting the other eggs have.After doing so you will apply overlay on the lighting layer and it shall look as in the image.
009 In the end I have created another layer and used a gradient color to make the color effects I want.
Here is the final image (the one i used in the competition) http://all.worth1000.com/entries/634534/glass-egg
