Blank figures by Spunnys are very easy to paint. Any common household paint works (watercolor, acrylic, tempera, oil). One can also use crayons, markers, pencils, almost anything.
The paintable figures are manufactured out of paper (no vinyl or plastic materials are used). However, they are sturdy to the touch. They come in several shapes and sizes and originated in Germany where they have been used for decades to create little ornaments.
Spunnys unpainted figures have very simple lines and are very versatile. They can be turned into miniature people, mini animals, little snowmen ornaments, birds, monsters, fairies, princesses, super-heroes. They are great at fostering creativity.
Several sizes and body types to choose from
Our paintable blank figures come in several sizes and shapes. The shortest one is about 1.5″. The tallest one is about 2.5″.
Note that each blank figure has a flat bottom and can stand up on its own without a pedestal. However, the figures with a cone shape bottom are more stable than their rounded counterparts.
Also, each blank figure has a little hole at the bottom. This hole allows to use a toothpick or a bamboo skewer to display the painted figures. It also makes painting convenient as one doesn’t have to hold the blank figures with his/her fingers.
SPUNNYS blank figures – how to use
SPUNNYS blank figures are like miniature 3D blank canvasses. Any paint, color markers or drawing supplies that work on paper will also work on spun cotton. And because they are very absorbent, paint dries fast, which make them very quick and fun to decorate.
Craft materials such as paper, cardboard, felt, fabric, and pipe cleaners can easily be used with SPUNNYS blank figures.
