36th PoPP and Mercury Pumpkins & Gourds

Thanks for Sharing!

Welcome Painters & Paint Lovers!!!

Hope you guys had a wonderful weekend.  We got back from San Diego last night after a fabulously fun weekend with family.  I almost completely forgot that today was Tuesday… how could I forget the Power of Paint Party?  Having a Monday off throws my whole week off.

Last week I shared with you guys how I created a faux mercury glass effect with spray paint…

you can read all the details from last weeks PoPP here.

Well I decided to try the same technique on some plastic pumpkins and gourds.

To make the speckled effect I sprayed the pumpkin with a mist of water and then immediately spray painted the pumpkin with my Aluminum spray paint.

Here they are next to some more plastic pumpkins and gourds that I painted creamy Heirloom White.  I love the creamy white and silver together!

So what have you been painting?

  3. Mist with water first, love it! I love this silver paint, have been using it everywhere lately. Would have never thought about this little tip though. Genius! Thank you for sharing. -K

  4. This is so cute and sophisticated looking! I love it. I'm off to find some pumpkins to paint! Seriously, I never think about decorating for fall because things are pretty…orange out there. I love these and your burlap pumpkins as well. I featured them on my blog! I hope you can stop by to check it out.
