Faux Concrete Pumpkin

I have always loved to draw and paint but I didn't really throw myself into it until after I had my first son.  I wanted to be a stay at home mom and at the same time be able to decorate the new home we had just purchased. I taught myself how to use power tools and began to build furniture which I would paint and sometimes sell.  What was once a hobby became a new part-time career which I feel so blessed to be able to do.
Transform a standard pumpkin into a faux concrete carving with FolkArt Painted Finishes.

Instructions

  1. Apply the Light Concrete to pumpkin with one of the shortie brush, using a patting motion to make ensure full texture. Cover the entire pumpkin.
  2. Dab on the darker concrete sparingly in the creases of pumpkin and add accents where desired.
  3. Using the squirt bottle, spray some water to make the concrete run down the pumpkin; this will blend the two colors together. Add as much as needed until you get your desired look.
  4. For the Barnwood cake plate, apply the Barnwood Tint onto the cake plate. Allow to dry completely.
  5. Brush on the Barnwood Wax, wipe it away immediately with a lint free cloth and then scrape off any excess with a plastic card (an old credit card or room key works great). Allow to dry completely.
