After I spray the pumpkin with the spray paint. I mix a bottle of 50% water and 50% white vinegar. To make the mercury glass effect.

How it looks with spray paint and water and vinegar spray.

it needed some color, in my opinion

it looked very good plain but I wanted it orange

I took regular craft paint mixed with MOD PODGE. To give it a permanent effect. I did 2 coats on both the lid and the body of the pumpkin. 2 coats was a personal choice. I left it dry completely in between coats. I left it dry overnight. You may not have to wait that long.
