Working with spun cotton carrot blanks – the basics
Spun cotton shapes are very simple to work with. Any paint that works on paper will also work on them (we recommend a premium quality acrylic paint). You can also use any type of glitter as a finish (German glass glitter, metallic glitter, snow glitter, sugar lookalike glitter…). To cover the carrots with glitter, simply apply craft white glue with a paintbrush and sprinkle the glitter on the shapes. Let dry until the glue turns from white to clear. Voila!
Each carrot has a hole on top in which a faux stem can be inserted (floral stems sold at craft stores work great).
TIP : The hole can also be used to hold the spun cotton carrots with a pick during the painting and decorating process. This way you won’t get any paint on your fingers.
TIP: For a more realistic look, do not hesitate to dent the shapes with your fingernails (or with a tool) to create little horizontal ridges.
