Metamorphosis Monday - Havest Moon Pumpkin

Metamorphosis Monday is sponsored by Susan at BETWEEN NAPS ON THE PORCH . Make sure to visit her blog and see all the wonderful transformations!


Several years ago I admired this Harvest Moon pumpkin in a page I had torn out of Country Living magazine and stored in my Fall idea file. So, eventually I decided to try to copy it. The original is charcoal on a real white pumpkin as you can see below.


I wanted to be able to enjoy my Harvest Moon pumpkin for many years, so I started with a white faux pumpkin from Micheals. I first painted the stem two shade of brown to look more realistic. Then to mimic the charcoal effect I used black, white and great acrylic paints to paint the facial features.

Here is my pumpkin below


and on my mantle -

Just a little paint turned a plain white pumpkin into something I had admired for years!
