instructions

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Basecoat your pumpkins with Lilac Mist, Caterpillar, and Key West and let dry.
  2. Mix a 2:1 ratio of Key West with Apple Barrel Pouring Medium. Make sure the mixture is well combined. Repeat this step with White, Black, Lilac Mist, and Caterpillar in separate cups.
  3. Layer your pouring paint mixtures into one cup. Don’t stir the layered paint. Pour the cup of paint onto your baking pan. Move the pan and use the momentum of the moving paint to cover the entirety of the pan.
  4. Once the poured paint is dry and has created a “skin”, carefully remove the dry paint from your paint and cut out monster eyes with your scissors.
  5. Mod Podge the monster eyes onto your base coated pumpkins.
  6. Paint mouths on your pumpkins with Black and let dry.
