Step-by-Step Instructions

 

  1. Mix a 2:1 ratio of Bimini Blue with Apple Barrel Pouring Medium. Make sure the mixture is well combined. Repeat this step with White, Bright Yellow, Jack-o-Lantern, and Fuchsia in separate cups.
  2. Stick your thumbtacks into the back side of one faux pumpkin. Place the thumbtacks at all four corners of your pumpkin so that the pumpkin is level when you place it on its backside.
  3. Pour your Bimini Blue and White mixture onto your pumpkin and swirl it to create a marble pattern. Set it aside and let it dry.
  4. Basecoat your biggest pumpkin with Yellow Flame and let dry.
  5. Pour your Bright Yellow, Jack-o-Lantern, and Fuschia mixture onto your non-stick pan. Swirl the paint to create a marble pattern. Pour just enough paint so that it creates a thin coat onto your pan. Set aside and let dry.
  6. Create an ombre effect on a separate faux pumpkin with Bright Magenta and Purple Iris. To do this, paint the top half with Bright Magenta and the bottom half with Purple Iris. While the paint is still wet, start to brush the two colors into each other. Dampen your paint brush with clean water to help with blending if needed. Let dry.
  7. Once your pan of marbled paint (or paint skin) is dry, draw a circle onto the dried paint and cut it out with scissors. Apply Mod Podge to the back side of your circle then adhere it to your Yellow Flame pumpkin. Smooth it out with your fingers and let dry.
  8. Once your blue marbled pumpkin is dry, use your pencil to draw a ghost shape onto the pumpkin then paint your drawing with Black. Tip: print out a ghost shape from your computer then cut out and trace onto your pumpkin.
  9. Repeat step 8 onto your pink and purple ombre pumpkin, but this time with a cat shape.
  10. Draw and paint bat shapes onto your yellow pumpkin with Black and let dry.
