Other Supplies

  • 5-6 Craft pumpkins and gourds of varying size
  • Disposable aluminum tray
  • Disposable cups

Instructions

  1. Place your pumpkin in the aluminum tray.
  2. Pour a generous amount of White Pouring Paint into a cup. Next pour a bit of Sour Apple into the same cup until you have approximately a 3:1 ratio of White to Sour Apple. Do not stir the paint.
  3. Pour the whole cup of paint onto the pumpkin.
  4. While the paint is running down your pumpkin, you can move and tilt the pumpkin for a greater marbled effect.
  5. Once the pumpkin is dry, paint the stem with white paint.
  6. Repeat this same process with remaining pumpkins using FolkArt Pouring Paint in Hot Pink, Yellow, and Aqua.
  7. Once your pumpkins are dry, spray 1-2 coats of sealer to prevent the paint from sticking.
