Spun Cotton Eggs: Questions and Answers
Can I dye the eggs just like real eggs?
They should not be immersed in liquids. The eggs would turn soft and spongy and may lose their original shapes.
Can I paint the eggs?
Absolutely, they are made of paper and are ready to go. There is no need for any primer.
How to paint Spun Cotton Eggs?
The easiest way to paint them is to insert a wooden 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 pick while holding the brush still.
What paint do you recommend?
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 even further, you can finish them with a non toxic clear coat such as mod podge.
How do spun cotton eggs compare to plastic and styrofoam eggs?
Spun cotton eggs are much easier to paint than plastic and styrofoam eggs. The feeling is similar to the one of painting on paper. Paint doesn’t smear and dries almost instantly.
