Other Supplies

7-10 real or artificial pumpkins/gourds in various sizes (real or artificial), Paper plate, Water basin, Paper towel

Instructions

  1. Arrange your pumpkins and determine the Color Shift color for each.
  2. We used the following base colors of multi-surface paint under each Color Shift color to give each pumpkin a rich undertone:
    • Moon Yellow basecoat for Yellow Flash
    • Autumn Leaves basecoat for Orange Flash
    • Magenta basecoat for Pink Flash
    • Classic Green for Green Flash
    • Aqua for Aqua Flash
    • Perfect Purple for Purple Flash
    • Ink Spot for Blue Violet Flash
  3. Basecoat each pumpkin with two coats of the multi-surface paints. Let dry in between coats.
  4. Top coat the pumpkins with the coordinating Color Shift colors with two coats. Let dry in between coats.
  5. Let dry 24 hours before arranging.
  6. Please note if you are using real pumpkins the paint will not preserve the pumpkins for future years!
  7. See project photo for inspiration. Share your Color Shift Pumpkins with us at #plaidcrafts!
