Spun Cotton Eggs: Questions and Answers
How to paint Spun Cotton Eggs?
The easiest way to paint them is to insert a pick at the bottom and use it as a handle. All spun cotton shapes already have a little hole at the bottom .
To paint a straight line around the egg, simply spin the wooden pick while holding the brush still.
How to cover them with glitter?
Use a paintbrush and start by applying some white tacky glue over the eggs. We recommend you hold the eggs via a wooden skewer to do so. Once done, sprinkle the eggs with the glitter over a small bowl. Let dry and voila :)
What paint is recommended?
We like acrylic paint because it dries fast and once it is dry, it creates a strong protective layer around the egg. To protect the eggs from eventually getting dirty and also to make them easy to clean, they can be finished with a clear coat. Glossy mod podge works great.
Can the eggs be dyed like real eggs?
They should not be immersed in liquids. The eggs would turn soft and spongy and lose their nice shapes.
