Stacked Jacks

I am all about fun and easy projects right now, and our Stacked Jack-o-Lanterns were perfect for this. All I did was basecoat and add a few highlights to bring this project to life.

Here are the paints you will need:
DecoArt Americana
Jack-o-Lantern
Lamp Black
Avocado
Neutral Grey
Purple Cow
Margarita
Bright Yellow

DecoArt Neons
Torrid Orange

DecoArt Extreme Sheen Metallics
Bronze

Basecoat the pumpkins in Jack-o-Lantern. This may take a few coats, so be patient and let it dry well between coats. The hat is Lamp Black. Leaves are Avocado. Hat Band is Purple Cow. Buckle is Bronze. Using your highlighter brush, scrub Torrid Orange down the center of each raised section, making sure to hit under the eyes and around the nose and mouth. I did this three times to really make the highlights pop. Once the pumpkins are dry, paint the eyes, nose, and mouth with Lamp Black. Add a highlight stroke to the eyes, nose and mouth for each pumpkin with Bright Yellow. The middle pumpkin I did a dip dot at the inner corner of the eyes. Highlight the leaves with Margarita, Make sure to make the tip bright, this took two applications. The hat is highlighted with Neutral Grey. Once everything is dry, it is time to varnish. I really wanted him to shine so I used DecoArt Acrylic Sealer Finisher Gloss Spray.

He was so fun and quick to paint, that he was done in just a matter of a few hours. I can’t wait to have him join my Halloween decor this season.

Happy Painting!
