Pumpkin Stack 🎃

fall pumpkin Oct 19, 2022

We are making this fun pumpkin stack on a 6x12 canvas with different colored pumpkins, lots of glass, and even some vitrigraph pieces. This is the perfect fall piece to make this month, and I love the way it all came together.

First, we are going to paint our background. I am using Anita's White as well as Hauser Green to create an abstract background. Let dry. 

Grab your tracer, tape it to the canvas, place graphite paper underneath, and trace your pumpkins with a stylus onto the canvas. I am going to leave some space on the bottom for my glass and vitrigraph.

Now, it's time to paint! I am doing an orange, blue, and off-white pumpkin. I am painting my bottom pumpkin orange with Warm Sunset and Spiced Pumpkin as well as some white paint for highlights. 

My next pumpkin will be painted with Spa Blue and Mermaid Blue as well as some white paint for highlighting.

My last pumpkin will be painted with Vintage White as well as some Traditional Burnt Umber. Then, I'll paint the top stem with a dark green called Avocado as well as the Traditional Burnt Umber again. Let dry. 

Now we will add detail work with a graphic pen. I will outline my pumpkins with short, imperfect strokes. I'll also add some curly q's on my pumpkin stem.

Let's add glass! I am adding green glass and clear glass to the bottom of my canvas. I'm also going to add some pieces of green vitrigraph. 

I'm also going to add some clear glass to the bottom of my other two pumpkins. 

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 will also sprinkle some seed beads on my piece. I'm using the color Autumn and just adding those to the bottom of my canvas. I'm also taking some Translucent seed beads and adding those to the my pumpkins.
