Spun Cotton Mushrooms: Frequently Asked Questions
Can Spun Cotton Mushrooms be painted?
Absolutely. For example, with SPUNNYS blank mushrooms, one can create mushroom ornaments that are similar to the “store bought” decorative mushrooms (often referred to as German Spun Cotton Mushrooms). To recreate the look of “store bought” mushrooms, we recommend using enamel paint and a thick glossy finish such as mod podge.
What paint is recommended?
We like acrylic paint because it dries very fast. However, any paint that works on paper would also work fine on spun cotton mushrooms. When painting the dots on the caps of the mushrooms, using a paint that has a fairly liquid consistency makes it is easier to make nice rounded dots.
Should a clear coat finish be used?
Yes, if you would like to give your mushrooms a lacquered finish or if you would like to protect them from getting dirty over time.
Any tips to help with the painting process?
To paint the mushrooms with ease and precision, insert a bamboo stick in their stems. Then hold your brush in one hand and the stick in the other hand. It’s particularly useful to paint along the edge of the mushroom caps. One simply needs to spin the bamboo stick while holding the brush still against the mushroom. Once painted, to let the paint dry, simply rest the sticks in a container so nothing will get in contact with the mushrooms while they dry.
Does each mushrooms size have a slightly different shape?
Yes, each mushroom size has a slightly different shape. For example, the 35mm mushroom is not a larger replica of the 25mm mushroom. The 35mm has a flatter cap and a sharper edge compared to the 25mm mushroom.
What can I make with blank spun cotton mushrooms?
The sky is the limit, there are so many possibilities, so many home decor projects. You could make beautiful colorful spun cotton mushroom ornaments (often called German spun cotton mushrooms). You could make Jewelry such as earrings and necklace pendants. You could insert a floral stem in the mushrooms and add them to floral arrangements. You could draw faces on the mushrooms. You could make Christmas decorations: insert one end of a pipe cleaner in a mushroom and wrap the other end around a Christmas tree branch. You could make vintage inspired Victorian ornaments – cover them with sugar glitter and add a metal hanging loop on top. You could make cupcake toppers by displaying them on a wooden toothpick. You could create a little enchanted forest scene to display on a shelf: start with a little moss, add a few painted mushrooms, add elves, gnomes, fairies. Time to get creative!
Did you know? SPUNNYS spun cotton half balls (hemispheres) make great mushroom caps.
They can be glued onto other spun cotton shapes to create beautiful mushroom ornaments. For example, in the picture below, we used a ø 70mm half-ball glued onto a small eggman figurine (see our spun cotton peg doll page). Eggman figurines work great as mushroom stipes because they have a flat base, allowing them to stand upright.
