Paint Pour Pumpkin

I love watching paint pouring videos. The process is mesmerizing and the results always turn out so cool! I've wanted to do one for a while, but I was a bit nervous because I had seen a few fails that made me wonder how difficult they actually were.

It turns out they are pretty simple, as long as you follow the directions.

First you'll need your supplies:

  • acrylic paint in the colors of your choice
  • something to paint (in this case, fake pumpkins from the craft store)
  • pouring medium (found with the acrylic paint at the craft store)
  • cups and stir sticks
  • a place you can get messy or a tarp or box to get messy on
We had a bunch of random acrylic paint lying around, so that's what we used. I added the pouring medium directly to the bottles, since they were less than half full already. You'll want the mixture to be 50/50 paint and pouring medium. Tip it around after mixing. Does it flow easily? Then it's good. If not, add some more pouring medium. We shook them up good and then squirted them into a cup. We did all this outside so the mess wouldn't be too bad, but we kept things inside a box lid as an additional precaution.

Once Henry had added the colors the way he wanted, he simply poured it over the top of our pumpkin. Watching and listening to his delight was honestly the best part of the whole project for me. He was absolutely delighted with how it turned out!

We left the pumpkin on the porch for a day or so to dry. Now it's sitting on the steps with my mums for a bit of decoration!
