Painting Pumpkins: to go on your flower arrangement

Materials Used:

  • Painters tape

  • FolkArt, Color Shift, Acrylic Paint, 5128E Pink Flash

  • FolkArt, Acrylic Paint, 2546E Bright Pink

PUMPKIN #1: Use painters tape to make geometric shapes, run a strip of tape diagonally around the pumpkin, and paint the entire pumpkin. Once the paint has dried, carefully pull up the tape, then paint or “fix” the spots to clean up the lines.


PUMPKIN #2: I used a paint dripping technique by diluting the paint with water and pouring the paint on top of the pumpkin.
