Paint the top and allow to dry. Then flip the pumpkin over to paint the other half.

Next, you will paint the surface of each pumpkin mold with Dixie Belle Patina Paint in Copper. The second coat is where the magic begins. You will need to work fast. The paint must be wet for the next step. 

The paint must be wet or your pumpkins will not patina. If the paint is starting to dry, mist with water. Spray Dixie Belle Patina Spray Green generously over the pumpkins. The patina could take up to 24 hours to appear. However, on these molds, it was instant.

Apply one coat of Dixie Belle Patina Guard to each of the pumpkins. Do this in a well ventilated room with gloves. Outside is the best!

Embellish you pumpkin with a twig as a stem and ribbon of choice. You can hot glue the stems.
