Instructions:

  1. Find a clear working space and protect it by taping down large paper bags, plastic garbage bags or something similar.
  2. Pour paint into bowls, mixing in just a tiny bit of water (if desired) to thin it out so it is more fluid, though not so much that it becomes watery. 
  3. Fill a mason jar with water (for rinsing paint brushes).
  4. Paint! For a solid base color, simply set your pumpkin right in the bowl of paint and use a larger sized brush to evenly coat the pumpkin.
  5. Set painted pumpkin aside on wax paper to dry.
  6. Once dried, you can get even more creative by dipping in a second color, painting on more details with the finer brush, or drawing henna-inspired designs with gel pens (sharpies or paint markers also work well for this).
  7. Set aside again to dry.
  8. Tie on personalized Evermine hang tags with twine for gifting!
