My second patch of painted pumpkins are a little unconventional. Kroger had sold out of my first white pumpkins so I challenged myself by purchasing green.
Pumpkin Painting is always a fun activity & a great way to spend time with loved ones.
What you’ll need:
- Pumpkin. I purchased faux pumpkins on sale at Kroger so I can enjoy them for years to come.
- Acrylic paint
- Paint palette. I used a paper plate.
- Paint brushes
What you do:
- A darker pumpkin requires a base layer or heavy body acrylic for coverage.
- I like to start with blocked colors and gradually add colors on top. If you make a mistake, keep layering! Or you can wash the acrylic paint off.
- Final touch-I used a darker color to define the stems.
- Adding text freehand or using a stencil is another option.
- Enjoy your coffee
Artist tip: If you have left over paint or need to stop painting you can save your paint by covering securely and storing in the freezer. With acrylic paint you just need to add a little water on your brush to bring it back to life.
