Pumpkin Decorating ...Creative Play

LIFE is a great big canvas, throw all the color you can on it!

Decorated pumpkin by Laura Leeder

What do three artists do when they get together for some creative play?  Why we decorate pumpkins of course!

Artist Laura Leeder

We started by choosing our wax crayon colors.  We then used gel medium to adhere them onto the top of the pumpkin.  

After allowing the gel medium to dry, we used a heat gun to melt the wax. (as demonstrated here by Win Dinn)









The melted wax created a fun and colorful design on each pumpkin.  (Eileen Gidman with her desert inspired colors)
And that's it!  So simple and fun.  Happy Halloween!
Creatively Yours,

Pleased to see your take on this play date. I meant to try this this year, but I didn't. Glad to see you three did.

We had so much fun that it truly should be illegal. Have to tell you that the trick or treaters enjoyed seeing a few of them on the porch too! Thanks for coming to play!

Dear Laura how fun. When artistic souls come together there seems to be no limits of fun and creativity. Hugs!
