- Using the patterns provided, cut out the eyes and mouth of pumpkin.
- Cut out a piece of burlap that will fit inside the mouth and two more pieces for the eyes.
- Push the burlap inward almost making a cup out of each hole. Glue it to the outside edge of the eyes and mouth. Trim the excess.
- Paint a black circle in the middle of the wooden ball.
- Using the liner brush, paint the veins in the eye.
- Using some of the Brown Rust mixed with water; paint the eye to age it.
- Glue the eye in place with the Mod Melter.
- Push the nails into the edge of the mouth to make a hole for the teeth. Pull the nails out and apply a small amount of the Mod Melt into each hole, stopping each time to stick each nail back into its hole. Repeat until the mouth is filled with teeth/nails.
- Using the Mod Melter, make the slime coming from the eyes and the mouth by placing the end of the Mod Melter at the top of the eyes and mouth and letting it drip.
- Add some Mod Melts around the outside of the eyes and the mouth to add dimension.
- Cut burlap into squares and glue them to the entire pumpkin using the Mod Melter.
- Paint the Light Concrete onto the burlap covering the pumpkin completely.
- Add depth with the Dark Concrete, especially around the eyes and mouth. Allow to dry.
- For the nose, add some more Mod Melts for dimension in the shape of an upside-down heart. Allow Mod Melt to harden.
- Add the Brown Rust to the nose, around eyes, stem and mouth. Add a little of the Red Rust on top of the Brown Rust. Repeat this process in other areas of the pumpkin. Allow to dry.
