Ombre Pumpkin!

Craft for Fall

I am too excited about my ombre pumpkin!  Do you like?  It took very little time to complete.

I started out with a fake pumpkin, two acrylic colors of choice (mine are hot pink and hot orange -- hello, '80s) and a make-up sponge.

Pink went on the bottom half, and I used a rubber band as a semi-straight barrier for me to avoid.

Orange was next, and I furrowed my brow more than once trying to figure out how the top should look.

I then combined the colors for the meeting in the middle.  Not too bad, but I wish I had something that would allow the colors to stay wet long enough to combine naturally.  Anybody have experience with an acrylic gel or medium?

I'll probably do a few more, like in March or June.  Any color combinations you would like me to try?  Blue and aqua make me smile, and maybe red and gold.  Let me know what you think would be amazing!
