Check out this video showing you how to create a fun “Charlie Brown” painted pumpkin.
Create this fun design in five easy steps!
Step 1. Get a bucket and fill it with water and soap. Take your orange pumpkin and soak it, then take a cleaning brush to wipe off any debris that typically sticks to your pumpkin. Take a towel and dry it and set it on a flat surface.
Step 2: Get out your roll of painter’s tape. Rip off pieces about 4 inches long and stick to your pumpkin in an up and down diagonal pattern completely around the pumpkin. You can choose to do two rows or one, for this video we used two rows.
Step 3. Grab your can of milk paint and get ready to mix. When you open your can you’ll find a bag of the Real Milk Paint powder. We recommend you pour one cup of powder back in the can followed by one cup of water. *The recommended ratio is always one part powder, one part water.
Simply snap the lid back on and shake your can. Make sure to shake it nice and good so it mixes well and comes out smooth. You want to shake it so you don’t see any chunks.
Step 4. If your pumpkin seems very waxy you can add 25% Ultra Bond to the paint. This will help it stick better and not peel off. If a bit of flaky paint is not a big deal then just go for it without Ultra Bond.
Step 5. Once you’re done shaking and the color is perfect, open your can. Grab a paintbrush and start painting. Don’t worry about painting over the painter’s tape, that’s what it’s there for!
Step 6. After you’ve put on a coat of Real Milk Paint and have let it dry (it takes about 5 minutes), peel off the painter’s tape and BOO! – you have a sweet painted pumpkin ready to put on display.
