Instructions

  1. Using the Light Concrete and the short Painted Finishes brush, apply the concrete to the pumpkin in a tapping fashion. While wet, add the dark concrete to areas you want to highlight. Allow to dry.
  2. Place floral foam into the pumpkin and add silk flowers.
  • PROJECT TIP: The dark concrete paint works best when applied with a light tapping motion. If you get too much of the dark color, just go back and add a little light color.
