Preparing Your Clay
- 1 large sphere or egg form
- 1 small cone
Indent the string into the clay form to create a ridged texture.
Score the top of the pumpkin form by drawing lines with a pointed tool. This
technique roughs up the clay pieces and helps them stick together like velcro.
Dip the brush into the water and scrub it back and forth over the scored lines. This will make the clay into slip and will act like a glue.
Connect the stem to the pumpkin. Smooth the bottom of the stem onto the pumpkin form.
Allow the clay to dry for 24 hours before painting it.
Paint the clay in the preferred style.
Painted to look like a real pumpkin found in nature.
Painted with a facial expression.
Painted with a design.
