I will be posting lots of tutorials in the upcoming months and today's tutorial is a little inspiration for decorating fall pumpkins! This is a great projects for kids and adults!
Start with a pumpkin or gourd and cover the surface with paint.
Blend paint on the surface of the pumpkin.
Add layers of drips, splatter, marks and text.
Use stencils, stamps, even collage on the surface- use your pumpkin like you would a mixed media surface.
Try painting on different sizes- challenge yourself to fill the entires surface of the pumkin!
