Want blue/green pumpkins but hate to spend the bank?
You can change your old ones as easy as ABC.
I started with some craft paint.
Celery green was my base color for this pumpkin
I just painted one quick coat with a foam brush.
It's ok if your orange shows...
We will paint layers and orange is good ;)
Between layers I hang them to dry like this..
After my first coat dried, I used slate green.
You can get real creative with your colors.
I tried to stay with colors close to my decor.
This time instead of using a foam brush I used this round blotter.
I'm sure it has a fancy name but I have no idea... ;)
Just a tip...before you blot your pumpkin, blot it a few times on a paper plate.
This will give it a more realistic look.
I left the cracks of the pumpkins the darker shade for some contrast :)
See how a little orange showing through looks nautral?
Have fun with it!
On a few I even added a little grey/black.
You may want to visit your local farmers market or google pumpkin varieties to get some color ideas.
For shiny pumpkins, I sprayed on a little clear coat.
You can find this in the spray paint isle.
This was such a fun project!
Just think of the possibilities....
