Pimp your pumpkins!
As I have just become a UK Stockist for the fab Iron Orchid Designs Decor Moulds, it was a great opportunity to use them too. So here goes!
Take your pumpkin of choice and paint it, using Frenchic! This chalk and mineral based paint can be applied to pretty much any surface and that includes pumpkins! I've used the Lazy range colour Loof - it has a built in wax sealer so no further sealer is required.
Then using the Feathers and Wings IOD Decor Mould and air dry clay I've made several feathers and wings to add to the pumpkin. These were then attached to it using No More Nails. Once dry I then painted the whole thing again with Frenchic Loof and dried with a hairdryer to speed up the process.
Mixing the Frenchic Frensheen powders is next and I chose a mix of the silver and gold to make an aged gold mixture. The powders were then mixed with clear wax to create a thick gilding wax that I rubbed on to the moulding with my finger tips to ensure that it only hit the high points, leaving the low points black.
So who is going to give it a go?
