Instructions :

Begin by giving the pumpkins a good coat of Black Carbon paint, allowing it to dry completely.

Apply a generous coating of Weathered Wood over the top of the prepared pumpkin, dry completely.

Apply Crackle Paint with paintbrush allowing it to do its magic as it dries.

Lay the Whirlpool Stencil on the top pumpkin, apply Crackle Paint with a palette knife to the top. Dry.

Repeat with the Pixelated Stencil on the second pumpkin using Crackle Paint and palette knife. Dry. 

Place the Shedded Stencil on the last pumpkin; repeat with Crackle Paint and palette knife. Dry.

Paint prepared pumpkin with  Dairylide Yellow, dry.

Repeat with Pyrrole Orange. Dry.
