Upgrade your Halloween décor with COLORSHOT! This easy tutorial will show you how to transform some basic ceramic jack-o-lanterns with COLORSHOT Clear Sealer for an easy terracotta pumpkin dupe. This simple project is a great way to refresh last year’s décor with textured, subtle color!
Disposable cup and plate
Drop cloth or protective surface cover
Gather the materials for this terracotta pumpkin dupe. Make sure your ceramic pumpkins are clean, dry, and free of dust and debris. Place your pumpkin onto a drop cloth or protective surface cover and work in a well-ventilated area.
Add flour to the acrylic paint and mix well. This will create a faux terracotta texture on your painted pumpkins! You’ll only need a few tablespoons of flour— the consistency of the paint mixture should still be viscous, not thick and chunky.
It’s time to start painting your terracotta pumpkin dupe! Use a paintbrush to apply the paint mixture, ensuring all the nooks and crannies of the jack-o-lantern have been coated.
Sprinkle more flour onto the faux terracotta pumpkin while the paint is still wet.
Use a dry paintbrush to spread the flour across the terracotta pumpkin and gently brush away the excess.
Seal your faux terracotta pumpkins with COLORSHOT Clear Sealer Matte. This will ensure your pumpkins last for Halloweens to come!
