Frequently asked questions


Can Spun Cotton Eggs be dyed like real eggs?

No! One should not dunk them in liquids. Spun cotton eggs would turn soft and spongy and lose their nice egg shapes (spun cotton eggs are made of tightly wound paper)


Can they be painted?

Absolutely, they are made of paper and are ready to go. No need for primer, gesso, or anything like that.


How to paint Spun Cotton Eggs?

We believe that the easiest way to paint spun cotton eggs is to insert a bamboo stick in them and use the stick as a handle. All spun cotton eggs already have a little hole at the bottom so there is no need to go get the drill :)

To paint a straight line around the egg, simply spin the bamboo stick while holding the brush still.


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.


How do Spun Cotton Eggs compare to plastic eggs?

We believe that spun cotton eggs are much easier to paint than plastic eggs. Simple acrylic paint or watercolor work great on spun cotton, whereas on plastic, one would need to use a primer or a special paint.
