How to Paint with Acrylics : Painting a Pumpkin With Acrylics


Hi! This is Brenda and today we are working
on our acrylic painting project. Now for this project I have decided to use a pumpkin and
it is Fall, and so I am going to make some leaves on the pumpkin. This is a real pumpkin
by the way, I have got my acrylic paints here to choose from my basket of various colors
and my little plastic tray for my painting and I have got my brush that I have decided
to use, so I am ready to begin. Now we start off with a clean pumpkin and first I am just
going to kind of draw an outline on my pumpkin of some leaves. Now if you don’t feel comfortable
just free hand drawing like this, you can of course cut out a design and trace it onto
your pumpkin and then just fill in like that if you would like to. You can find designs
in coloring books or various magazines. So I have just made a basic design like this
and now I am just going to go and fill in with my acrylic paint, like this. Now I am
going to get some of my orange paint and I am just going to blend it in like this, because
of course leaves are different colors and just have some mingling colors like this and
I am going to come around over here and make another leaf shape and this will be pretty
out on your patio or front door step and it makes a pretty Fall decoration. When I am
through, I will immediately clean my brushes because we don’t want to have dried up paint
brushes when we begin our next art project.
