I used acrylic paints that I purchased from Hobby Lobby. The base of the pumpkin is French Vanilla (Folk Art.) For the colored dots, I used Georgia Clay (Americana), and Eggplant, Turner’s Yellow, and Clover by Folk Art.
Once I had painted the base, I used a nickel to make my circles on the pumpkin. As I was painting, I didn’t try to make perfect circles. As you can see, the circles on my china aren’t perfect either. That’s a good thing.
After I got all the circles painted, I went back and painted an outline around each circle the way it had been done on the china.
I was so happy with the way the pumpkin turned out that I’ve already painted a smaller, artificial pumpkin the same way. And then it struck me. I should have painted an artificial pumpkin rather than a real one so I could keep it and use it from year to year! Oh, well!
