Halloween Paint Pour Pumpkins

 

What You'll Need:

STEP 1:

A)Pour the contents of two bottles of deco podge into a jar that has a lid.

B)Fill an empty deco podge bottle with water until it's about 2/3 full.

C)Pour the water into the jar containing the deco podge.

D)Put the lid on the jar and shake well to mix the contents.

STEP 2:

A)Squeeze about three teaspoons of each paint color into individual cups.

B)Remove the lid from the jar and pour a small amount of the deco podge-water mixture into each cup.

C)Stir each cup until the paint and deco podge-water mixture is well blended. The paint mix should have the consistency of honey. You can add more of the deco podge-water mixture to the paint to reach the desired consistency, if needed.

STEP 3:

A)Create a "dirty pour": In a clean, empty cup, pour your paint colors one on top of the other. You can repeat layering the colors until you use up all the paint.

STEP 4:

A)Gently remove the stem from a faux pumpkin.

B)Insert a pencil into the top of the pumpkin to use as a handle during the paint pour.

C)Pour your "dirty pour" paint mixture over the pumpkin. Let drip.

D)If the paint doesn't completely run over the entire pumpkin, you can use a paint brush dipped in the runoff paint below to fill in any gaps. Let dry. Bonus idea: Place a canvas under the pumpkin to catch the paint mixture runoff. When your pumpkin paint pour is done, set the pumpkin aside to dry and tilt the canvas to make a paint pour piece of art!

STEP 5:

A)Remove the pencil from the pumpkin. B)Insert the stem back in place.

TA DA!
