It’s a good idea to keep your pumpkin painting to a minimum.
It’s also important to paint on the inside of the pumpkins to keep the paint on and away from the pumpkin itself.
So, don’t get all bent out of shape when you put a pumpkin on the table or the shelf, says Susan Smith, an artist and a professor at the University of Missouri.
Smith also recommends avoiding the temptation to paint the pumpkin’s exterior as well.
The pumpkin is just one part of the painting process and you want to avoid adding too much paint to the pumpkin, says Smith.
You want the paint to sit in a spot where it can dry and dry clean the paint without smudging or sticking.
But the interior painting isn’t just about the pumpkin and the paint.
To give your painting the perfect blend of color, Smith suggests taking your paint and moving it up and down the pumpkin to give it a little bit of depth.
For instance, take your paintbrush and paint it across the top of the pumpkin in a small circle.
You can then paint on a few layers of the other pumpkin on top of that, or use a paintbrush to cover the bottom of the previous pumpkin.
Once you’ve finished painting your pumpkin with your paint, use your brush to cover any imperfections and paint them over again.
