Working with spun cotton lemon blanks – the basics
Like all of our shapes, lemon shapes are easy to work with. Any paint that works with paper will also work with 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 lookalike glitter, sugar lookalike glitter…). To cover the lemons with glitter, just 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!
Spun cotton lemons have a pointy tapered side. The other side has a hole in it in which a faux stem with leaves can be inserted.
TIP : The hole can also be used to hold the spun cotton lemons with a pick during the painting and decorating process. This way you won’t get any paint on your fingers.
