I decided I would be brave and paint my second orange pumpkin, too. I choose to paint this one gray, pink and cream.
I painted the first coat gray, let that dry.
Then painted the centers of the raised areas with the pink paint, making sure to leave the valleys gray.
Next I highlighted the ridges with the cream paint.
And finally I added a few splatters of dusty green with watered down acrylic paint.
On this pumpkin I painted the leaf green and brown and the also painted the stem brown.
And here it is all finished.
