Here finally is the much requested cotton candy tutorial! :D
Thank you for your patience!

Have fun! I tried to break down the steps as simple as possible. Let me know how your cotton candies turn out. :]

Note about part III:
If you're worried about the stability of tucking, my cotton candy was put through 2 long con days (+ travelling) and did not deteriorate or change condition at all. :D

Why make fake cotton candy?
:bulletpink: It's not sticky.
:bulletblue: It won't melt.
:bulletpink: It lasts longer.
:bulletblue: Easier to transport.
:bulletpink: It's a prop!

:damphyr:Get in touch with me on :facebook: facebook, if you like. :]

Thanks for the tutorial. Polyester stuffing alone didn't have the right texture, but this will do it!

Thank you so much for this tutorial! I had a similar idea to obtain a cotton candy effect, but I wasn't quite sure were to start. It gives me a lot of new ideas!

This is AWESOME.
I work at a toy store & sweet shop and we've been wanting candy props for a long time!
So today I started making these, currently waiting for them to dry, and my boss is going to be ecstatic!

Too cute!
