INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Wipe the pumpkin jar clean with a paper towel and rubbing alcohol. Make a dark orange color by mixing (2) parts Bright Orange with (1) part Tuscan Red. Place the mix and Bright Orange on a palette or plastic plate. Using a #8 round brush, make short brush marks in a vertical direction on the pumpkin jar with both colors. (Do not rinse the brush between colors.) Continue this process all the way around the pumpkin. Save the mix for future steps.

Place the mix and Festive Green on a palette or plate. Using a #8 round brush, make short brush marks in a vertical direction all the way around the stem. (Do not rinse brush between colors.)
