Five More

October 7th, 2010

Finally painted five pumpkins that were created for a Great Lakes FrightFest demonstration last spring, these pumpkins were painted with an airbrush, sealed, then washed with black paint.

The final coat of black paint was wiped from the surface with a damp cloth leaving only traces of the paint in recessed areas.

The coat of sealant protected the paint applied by the airbrush.

The resulting pumpkins are a little brighter but still have a lot of visible texture due to the addition of the black paint.

    Love the airbrushed pumpkins! They look awesome! What kind/size airbrush do you use? And what do you thin your paint with? Thanks! Great work as usual!

    wow! These are so neat, I try different crafts and am going to try paper mache. Do you start with a balloon in these and then pop? Use the paper clay mixture after and sculpt them? They are fantastic! Wonderful!!
