How cool & fun are these pumpkins??!!
Pumpkins are paper mache...that I painted black and orange and then I gilded them.
Gilding is: the technique of applying a thin layer of gold to a surface.
But instead of gold...
I used silver and copper leaf.

Pumpkins then were aged and sealed.

They were so much fun to make.
Great look for Autumn.
Pumpkins have been listed on my ebay, and auction ends Monday Sept 14.

Thanks for looking!
