After watching people do vases etc, wondered how to add interest to a pumpkin...

    Depends how glossy the shell-skin is.

    You can use the same technique for a pumpkin. You need a bowl of water, make sure the water is warm too hot, and will your nail polish on top. Swirl the object you wish to marbleize through the nail polish.

    Sure why not. Just don't eat it afterwards.

    1St I filled a container with water (large enough to fit your pumain in )
    2nd wash the pumpkin with 15 drops of dõTerra lemon ESSENTIAL OIL'S & water & water.
    3Rd dump nail polish in the container of water. Making swerls with a stick in the container of polish &water. Yes, the Polish will float on top of water.
    4th holding pumpkin by it's stem, dip into the container of water and polish .1 side @ a time., rotating the pumpkin slightly. REPEAT on other side.
    I use this method to dip coffee cups &they turned out beautiful. I'm going to be doing gourds this year. My grandchildren are carving out the pumpkins. Have fun!
