And I can't help it, even though it's been done....I want to make a pumpkin house.
Luckily, we had a crap-ton of halloween decorations boxed up, and I found a nice big pumpkin to carve up.
I wanted the inside to look like an actual dried out pumpkin, so I concocted this recipe of acrylic texture paste, craft sand, yellow and cream paint, and some pastel dust:
And here it is, dried, with the cardboard beginnings of the stone fireplace (which I worked on today and will post pics of very soon- its AWESOME). I really like the colour, and am VERY excited about this project!:
