Working with Spun Cotton Rolls
Spun cotton rolls are very easy to work with. They mix well with most craft paints and most craft glues.
For example, to make the above mini Kokeshi doll, we used regular acrylic paint. A small brush was needed to paint the tiny details. We then tied a little piece of golden string into a loop and inserted the knot into the shape’s hole. A little bead of tacky glue was finally poured into the hole to make sure the string would not come out.
