Other Supplies

Faux Pumpkin, 1” Flat brush, 2” Flat brush, Fan brush


  1. Basecoat the entire pumpkin with Titanium White.
  2. To create your pattern, find the starting point on your pumpkin. With the 2” flat brush and Autumn Leaves, paint a 2” vertical stripe in the middle. Continue with two more stripes on each side, gradually making them smaller. While the paint is still wet, take the fan brush and drag it through the paint to give you the Ikat look. Continue the steps on the remainder of the pumpkin.
  3. Use the fan brush and Bright Gold to accent each painted area as shown.
