I did tell you that you can paint this in any color you prefer. Make it more traditionally Fall or even go wild with bright flamboyant colors!
You can also change up the lettering.
Lets jump right in to painting the Cotton Bolls.
Using the smaller Scruffy brush that comes in the pack, load it with Wicker white by tapping it into the edge of a puddle.
Lightly tap off some and pounce on your surface.
Be sure to leave some of the base paint showing, this will help give it dimension.
Keep the shapes looking rounded. Move the brush around as you pounce up and down.
While the cotton bolls are drying double load the 3/4″ flat brush with Succulent and Thicket.

Stroke along the pumpkin segments making sure the Thicket is the ribs.
You may need to go over your green pumpkins a couple times. Blend the paint slightly along the ribs. You don’t want a solid line there.
Touch up the cotton bolls if you need to (see video linked below)
Get the pattern.
