hi, Flora
I left a comment already but can't find what post I left it on, this time I'll sign up my email so I can see.
Anyway- I usually work with clay to make figurines and was trying to make spun cotton figurines- the ones I make are posable and soft, is that how they should be? I understand if you'd rather not divulge in your secrets you have learned. thank you, really enjoy your work.

Hello Nicole I did get your message and answered it , I wonder what happened with it? I am self taught in spun cotton so I can only tell you how my work feels ,which is that it is firm and I do not recommend bending or posing mine. I was told by the artist that was on Martha Stewart- Lucy, that the cotton batting ones are just wound around an armature and the adhered at the end ,where as spun cotton is adhered as you wind it with whatever glue your preference is . I water down white glue 2-1 ratio or more.then brush it on the cotton. Hope it helps. Blessings,Flora
