Hairline cracks all over dome

Does anyone have egg with this appearance. White hairline cracks all over dome. Only 3 months old. Doesn't seem to affect cooking but looks as if could shatter.

    Are they really really fine? They only show up when the surface of the egg is dry? I think that is normal. My seems to have them all over. 2 year old egg.[p]TNW

    They really, really shouldn't cause you any concern as those hairline cracks are in the fired glaze and Mr Egg is a heavy piece.. However...iffin they REALLY bother you go to a craft store and buy some acrylic craft paint (about a buck fifty for 2 oz) and using a piece of clothe along with another damp-NOT WET-one rub the paint into the tiny cracks and quickly wipe off so none stays on the surface. I had minute pin prick white spots on my medium and this was my solution. BTW I found the brand of Anita's AllPurpose Acrylic # 11040 Hunter Green was a "perfect" match
