Try It Tuesday~Paint Pouring with DecoArt~Pumpkins!

Hi guys!
I have a project using the paint pour technique by DecoArt.  I started with three really
 old plastic pumpkins from Wal-mart.  They have seen many fall seasons. 
I had the idea to create the marble effect, on the pumpkins, that is so popular.
So I started with this ~

I had painted the pumpkins many times over the years.  They were all
 different shades of orange.  Another reason I loved the paint pour idea!!

1. Prepare the area for the pour.  
2. Choose paint colors, add to cups.
3. Add pouring medium (2:1 paint to pouring medium)
4. Stir each color with stick.
5. Combine each color into one cup.
6. Pour over object.

Designer note~
The top pumpkin has an undercoat of acrylic paint.  I found out the paint doesn't drip all the way down because it is a round object.  I ended using my hands, to add color from the paint that had dripped off, to the bottom of this pumpkin.  The second picture, the undercoat of paint, was painted on about 3/4 of the pumpkin~worked much better.  The pumkins dried for about 8 hours before the Top Coat was applied.

Hot glue was used to secure jute around the stems of the pumpkins.  I painted the Top Coat (instead of doing the pouring method) on with a soft brush. I wanted the bottom and underneath, of the pumpkin) covered also. Worked great!
