You know the other day how I said I was done with Halloween? ….well…..I forgot that I bought a paper mache pumpkin when I was in Hobbycraft and seeing as it is Halloween tomorrow, I thought I better paint it 😀
I actually got a bargain it was reduced to £4.00 ! So here is my naked pumpkin, it is fairly big and about the size of a medium real one 😉
I gave it an initial coat of Paperartsy Butternut Opaque chalk finish paint I didnt have any opaque orange paints so had to improvise
then I added a dollop of Deco Art Media Tinting Base and some quinacridone gold which gave me a pale orange colour
then i mixed in more quinacridone gold to the base dollop on my desk and we are getting there..
and even more ….
then i dry brushed neat quinacrodone gold all over the top.. and happy with the result
Happy Halloween everyone!!
