|Two fake pumpkins|
I can't remember where I got these fake pumpkins, but the yellow in them was always a little off-putting to me, so much so that I kept them hidden away in a plastic bag. Not anymore! With a fresh coat of paint, they look a little better to me.
|Not a fan of the yellow...|
I covered my work surface with waxed paper so I didn't get paint everywhere. Next, I selected to colors I
wanted to paint the pumpkins. I had a nice orange and then I mixed up a bit of orange and brown as a secondary color.
I painted a thin layer of plain orange over a section of yellow, feathering out the edges a bit.
Finally, I added a layer of the darker orange I mixed up to the previously yellow sections for some depth and dabbed it with a fresh piece of paper towel.
They aren't the prettiest pumpkins in the patch, but I think it is a definite improvement.
