Hello CE Friends! Nicolle here sharing a fun steampunk pumpkin.

I started with 3 oval birch wood pieces. I gorilla wood glued  them together to form a pumpkin shape.

I then added a bunch of our  different sized gears, clocks  and chains .

   I then simply sprayed the whole piece with black spray paint.

I then applied a copper wax throughout the piece for a metallic look.

I wanted a rusty look to the piece so I then went over with it with a variety of rust pastes by finnabair and finished with dry brushing with white acrylic paint.

I used a different color rust paste for the leaf.

I twisted some copper wire to create tendrils.

 

I took and old pool pvc pipe and added a stem. I spray painted that black and added copper paste.

This project was a bit time consuming but fun. Thanks for stopping by.
