INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Gather as many mini pumpkins as needed for the wreath size. (Measure by laying pumpkins on the wreath frame.) For a 16" frame you will need approximately 14 mini pumpkins. (TIP: pour a few more to have in case needed.) Use the Sunkissed Fluid Art Ready to Pour Paint Pack plus the Gold Metallic Ready to Pour Paint. Cover your work surface with the plastic tablecloth. Set the wire rack(s) in the aluminum foil pan. Place several pumpkins on the rack. This will allow the extra paint to drip off. (TIP: a plastic tray and a wire rack will work too.) Start by pouring/painting the gold onto all of the stems.

  2. In a small disposable cup, tilted to one side, layer paint colors from the Sunkissed pack: Sienna, Ivory, Golden Yellow and Smokey Pink. Pour in a cicular motion on top of each pumpkin. Refill cup in different layering patterns to get a variety of different pour looks.
