Modern marbled pumpkin

I wanted to try out the marbling trend on a basic white pumpkin that I picked up at Michaels the other day. I decided to go with the shaving cream method that I had previously used on paper and just loved doing.

First, applied a thick layer of shaving cream in my pan and then randomly drizzled gold and navy blue paint on top. You’re supposed to swirl it a bit with a toothpick, but I forgot and just rolled the pumpkin across the surface like this. But as you can see, it didn’t seem to matter!

The hardest part of this whole project was waiting for the shaving cream to dry/dissolve. When you use this technique on paper, you can use a flat edge to scrape off the excess cream, but on a rounded surface like this, it’s actually better just to let it air dry.

Once completely dry, I did wipe away and excess from the top of the pumpkin. I love the swirled look and how it is truly a one-of-a-kind pumpkin!

    Once again. you demonstrate a pumpkin that I have to try! (I did the white zentangle pumpkin from a couple years ago — took me 2 years to finish it but it turned out really neat.)
