Candy Corn Paint Skin Pour

By: Emma Pniewski

If you love paint pouring and hate how much is wasted, check out this unique fall idea! Let your extra poured paint dry, then peel from your surface. Using a knife cut your "paint skin" into shapes that you can Mod Podge into something new. Use autumn colors that you poured with and cut them into a sweet candy corn shape.
