The first is a faux skin textured Halloweeny style wrap around journal, made using leftover tissue paper and string.. there is a full photo tutorial over on the Colourcraft blog if you would like to see how.. just click here and it will take you there

Halloween Pumpkin

Hi Everyone!

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 😉

bare

I gave it an initial coat of Paperartsy Butternut Opaque chalk finish paint I didnt have any opaque orange paints so had to improvise

one-coat

then I added a dollop of Deco Art Media Tinting Base and some quinacridone gold which gave me a pale orange colour

coat-2

then i mixed in more quinacridone gold to the base dollop on my desk and we are getting there..

coat-3

and even more ….

coat-4

then i dry brushed neat quinacrodone gold all over the top.. and happy with the result

final-coat

Happy Halloween everyone!!

This is ATC (Artist Trading Card) number 4 of 4 and it is slightly different from the rest I featured here on the blog this week.

h-1

  • DecoArt Media Tinting Base
  • DecoArt Media Matte Medium & texture paste
  • DecoArt Fluid Acrylics Metallic Silver, Panes Grey and Black
  • DecoArt Shimmer Mister White
  • Scrapiniec Decorative Chipboard
  • That’s Crafty ATC White/Greyboard
  • H Stencil (from chipboard letter sheet I had used the H so used hole as stencil)

I mixed a spot of cobalt black paint in with the texture paste and swiped this over my stencil, i like this decoart media texture paste as it is quite rubbery when dry as opposed to a chalky finish.
