Working with Spun Cotton Pumpkin blanks – the basics
Spun cotton shapes are very straightforward 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 lookalike glitter, sugar lookalike glitter… To cover the pumpkins 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 pumpkin 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 pumpkins with a pick during the painting and decorating process. This way you won’t get any paint on your fingers.
TIP: Prior to painting them, you can dent the surface of the pumpkins to create ridges (with your nail or with a tool) and give them an even more realistic look. To ease the denting process, you can spray a little water on the surface of the pumpkins. You will then have to let the pumpkins dry before painting them.
