How do I make eggs that look like David Rakoff's

Rakoff's death led Salon to post his short essay (linked above) about crafting metallic looking eggs. I'm motivated out of celebrity grief to try and create some of my own. I've got the eggs and graphite... now what?
Rubbing graphite on the eggs does produce a modest grey shine but certainly nothing as rich or shiny as the two pictures. The second picture almost looks coppery.
I'm open to any suggestions as I'm more of a handy person than a crafty person.
