Inked Metal Pumpkin Tutorial

November 3, 2019

 

Each fall I teach live workshops in SE Wisconsin to create beautiful galvanized metal pumpkins covered in vibrant, yet translucent, alcohol inks. We call it "Pumpkin Fever!". When the metal shines through the inks, they just glow. From a distance they almost look like glass. Alcohol ink and galvanized metal is a fantastic combination!

 

Where do you get the pumpkins?

The 7" size shown here is from Hobby Lobby. They also have have a larger version. If you can't find them at your local store (they are sold out online), Amazon also has a similar style. As do many other online retailers.
