Paint a Pumpkin

Instead of carving a pumpkin this year, try painting one!
You’ll need:

  • (1) Pumpkin of any size
  • Acrylic Paint (Alicia likes Craft Smart and Folk Art paint)
  • Acrylic Paint Pens 

After you’ve gathered your materials, apply 2 coats of paint to your pumpkin. After it dries, use the paint pens to create the dotted effect. For the finishing touch, apply 2 coats of Folk Art Dragonfly Glaze in Violet Blue-Green Shift. It creates a shiny, translucent finish.
