Crazy Orange Pumpkin

fall pumpkin Sep 14, 2022

It's officially pumpkin season! I love making pumpkins (I think I made like 20 last year!) We are starting off very basic with an orange pumpkin with a teal blue background and some clear glass and beads on a 6x6 canvas. We are mixing some crazy colors together and having some fun. Let's get started! 

We are going to start by painting the background with white paint, Mermaid Blue, and a green teal color. Add strokes in all different directions as you mix the colors. I'm also painting the sides as well. Let dry.

Grab the tracer, tape it to the canvas, place graphite paper underneath, and trace your pumpkin with a stylus onto the canvas. 

I'm using Spiced Pumpkin, Terracotta, Heritage Brick, and Yellow Ochre to paint the pumpkin. I'm going to start with the Spiced Pumpkin color and then add in some of the other colors for highlights and definition. I'm even going to add in a little bit of the blue paint too. I'm just adding in colors that make me happy!

Now, I'm using Burnt Umber for the stem. I'm also going to add in some white paint on the left side and green paint on the right side. Let dry.

I'm going to brush a little bit of the yellow color onto the pumpkin too. This is so colorful and fun!

I'm going to take my graphic pen and outline my pumpkin and stem. I use short strokes and just add in some of those detail lines. Add in some curly q's on your pumpkin stem too!

Now it's time to add glass! I am going to add some Starfire glass to my pumpkin.

Next, we will add resin. We're going to elevate our canvas using blocks. Mix 1/2 ounce of resin and stir gently for three minutes. Then, drizzle over your glass. Pour the remainder of resin onto your canvas and spread it using your gloved fingers or brush.

Use a heat gun to pop your bubbles. Keep your heat moving at all times!

I'm also going to sprinkle some white beads into my glass. 

So cute! Expect lots more pumpkin tutorials for the fall season!
